LVC Enacts Guest Policy 

hv Amv Hnstotlor ^ i ~ . ■ . . . • i 

by Amy Hosteller 

After months of careful 
consideration and review, the 
Lebanon Valley College Board 
of Trustees has implemented a 
new guest policy for the first 
semester of the 1983-84 aca- 
demic year. 

According to the president 
of the LVC Board of Trustees, 
F. Allen Rutherford, Jr., the 
impetus for the change came 
from the student body. "A 
group of students came before 
the Board of Trustees and pre- 
sented a request for a change 
in the intervisitation policy," 
Rutherford said. The board's 
committee on extracurricular 
activities and student life then 
proceeded to devise a proposal 
to alter the policy. 

Rutherford added that the 
committee is currently study- 
ing the alcohol policy and will 
continue to evaluate the new 
guest policy throughout the 
year. The evaluation process 
will be determined at the Oct. 
22 meeting of the Board of 

During the first week of 
classes, the Dean of Students 

Office and the Resident Assis- 
tants distributed memos con- 
cerning the new guest policy 
and ballots to all resident stu- 
dents. The students voted for 
one of five options for 
extended hours on the 
weekend: 12 noon-12 mid- 
night, .12 noon-2 a.m., 12 
noon-4 a.m., 12 noon-8 a.m. 
and 24 hour intervisitation. 
According to the Dean of 
Students, George Marquette, 
all dormitories voted for the 
24-hour policy. 

The memo outlined many 
conditions that the students 
must accept in order for the 
new policy to be implemented. 
All female residents must es- 
cort male guests from "the 
public area to the appropriate 
room and from the room to 
the outside door..." 
Marquette said that this 
condition is necessary because 
of the legalities involved. 

"When someone forces 
their way into a female resi- 
dent hall, we can throw the 
full weight of the college 
behind that case," he said. "I 
think we take women's secur- 

ity matters very seriously. The 
policy indicates that we don't 
want to restrict their comings 
and goings, but it offers some 
assurance for the female resi- 
dents." All male residents 
must escort female guests 
from their rooms to the out- 

Although the women's 
residence halls are locked at 12 
midnight, the men's dorms are 
left open. "I guess there is no 
good reason for it, but for 40 
years we haven't locked 
them," Marquette explained. 

Another condition of the 
new policy is that "all over- 
night guests will register with 
the Head Resident (Assis- 
tant) ... the 'overnight 
guest' applies only to off-cam- 
pus overnight guests," 

Marquette said that the new 
policy is actually a "dilution" 
of the stipulations in the 
Board's background paper. "I 
take responsibility for 'stretch- 
ing' the conditions, but I feel 
that this is a very positive

Koterba Comments on W/S 

by David Frye 

The Director of Financial 
Aid, Christine Koterba, 
recently discussed the college's 
^ork-Study and Work-Aid 

The Work-Study Program is 
federally subsidized. The fed- 
e ral government initially 
^Pplies 80% and the college 
20% of the funds. The Work- 
Aid Program is funded by the 

Students must have filed a 
r>nancial Aid Form (FAF) for 
19 83-1984 to be eligible for 

consideration under the Work- 
Study Program. 

Once students were deemed 
"needy" for this academic 
year, Koterba matched 
students to jobs. She based the 
matches on faculty and 
administrative requests and 
on students' desires voiced in 
the forms completed this past 

"I have to emphasize that 
College Work-Study students 
are needy, at least needier than 
others, because they qualify to 
receive the funds," Koterba 


Koterba explained that 
because the Work-Study and 
Work-Aid Programs are 
forms of financial aid, all 
requests for student employ- 
ment must pass through her 
office. While this procedure 
has been stated in the Student 
Handbook and other college 
literature, she has only recent- 
ly enforced it. 

Koterba said, "It is impor- 
tant, too, to recognize last 
year was out of my control, as

Renovations Set 
For Snack Shop 

by Robert Donley 

by Robert Donley 

Last night's Attitude 
Adjustment Night sponsored 
by the Student Activities 
Office, marked the grand re- 
opening of the snack shop and 
the new TV/game room after 
summer renovations. 

The snack shop remodeling 
was the first part of a College 
Center renovation project 
aimed at bettering student at- 
titudes toward the center. 

The project, initiated by 
Student Activities Director 
Cheryl Reihl, began last 
October when Reihl and a 
group of six LVC students met 
to discuss the lack of student 
interest and involvement in the 

Student Susan Kretovich, a 
member of the student renova- 
tion team, said the students 
were "down about the College 
Center... There was no reason 
for the students to be here." 

According to Kretovich, 
The students' desire for a 
"public atmosphere" was the 
impetus for the renovation 

Another member of the 
renovation team, student 
Harold Haslett, referred to the 
air of sterility which "seemed 
to pervade the center." 

Haslett said the idea of 
renovation was not the 
original brainchild of the reno- 
vation team. "For as long as 
I've known, there's always 
been an interest in College 
Center renovations," Haslett 

The three-year renovation 
plan involves remodeling on 
the lower floor of the center, 
primarily in the game room 
and the snack shop. 

Renovations also include 
the area at the base of the

1983 LVC Homecoming Returns to Tradition 

Homecoming 1983 repre- 
sents a return to tradition. The 
college will revive two time- 
honored homecoming 
traditions and usher in several 
new ones. 

Saturday evening will fea- 

ture a Homecoming Dance, a 
highlight of homecomings 
past. Music will be provided 
by the LVC Jazz Band. 

The traditional Tug-of-War 
across the Quittapahilla will, 
as in years past, be held on 

Homecoming Weekend. 

The Wig & Buckle drama 
club will present Tennessee 
Williams' A Streetcar Named 

Reverend Susan Hassinger, 
'64, first woman district super- 
intendent in the Eastern Penn- 

Streetcar Opens Sept. 23 

by Kathryn Rolston 

Wig and Buckle will present 
A Streetcar Named Desire, an 
intense and realistic tragedy on 
Sept. 23, 24 and 25 in the 
College Center Little Theater. 
The play is directed by John 

Streetcar is about a woman 
tragically out of touch with 
herself and her physical needs. 
She becomes dangerously 
entwined with her sister's 
husband in a desperate 
attempt before it is too late to 
find what is lacking in herself 
and in her life. 

Dr. Kearney says he is 
enthusiastic about the 
production so far. Since this is 
his first year as a director with 
Wig and Buckle, he finds that 
he can learn as he goes along 
while gaining confidence. 

He says he can handle the 
acting end of the production 
because the actors bring a 
sensitivity and intelligence to 
their roles, but he is relying 
heavily on student talent, 
particularly Ann 
Marcinkowski, Wig and 
Buckle president, for the 
technical side. 

Lisa Stahl plays the leading 
role of Blanche. Lisa had parts 
in Oklahoma and South 
Pacific. Peter Johansson is 
Stanley, the male lead. His 
previous roles include last 
year's One Act Plays, a high 
school production of 
Jabberwocky and the part of 
Maxwell Smart in Get Smart. 

The role of Stella will be 
portrayed by Ruth Robinson, 
who has also been seen in 

Cabaret and One Act Plays. 
Finally, Bruce Hoffman is 
Mitch. Bruce's other credits 
include The Pajama Game, 
Monkey's Paw, Funny Girl 
and Once Upon a Mattress. 

A Streetcar Named Desire is 
a powerful tragedy with the 
potential to be very moving. 
There are some violent scenes 
in Streetcar, scenes not 
common to LVC theatre. It 
demands from its audience a 
great emotional response, but 
it gives back equal 

Other actors include: Geof- 
frey Howson, Neill Keller, 
Laurie McKannon, Mark 
Alexander, Brian Gockley, 
Marilyn Alberian, Linda 
Hostetter and Amy Hostetler.

I was living with Mr. Zellers' 
decisions." (Jeff Zellers was 
the Directqr of Financial Aid 
before Koterba.) 

Koterba stated two reasons 
why she must more strictly en- 
force this procedure. One is to 
satisfy the requirements for 
the college's auditing. The 
second is to make sure the 
college disburses as much of 
the Work-Study funds as pos- 
sible, in order to qualify for 
further funding at similar

Anyone wishing a Letter to the 
Editdt,' advertisement or 
article to appear in an issue 
should turn it in by the Friday 
preceding the issue date. 

Last academic year, the 
students on Work-Aid 
outnumbered the students on 
Work-Study by almost two to 
one, Koterba pointed out. As 
a result, student earnings 
caused a spending imbalance 
threatening federal funding 
for future years. Koterba was 
able to rectify this problem. 

For the academic year 1984- 
1985, Koterba plans to have 
student employment 
assignments made by May 

1984. She also said she would 
know by the end of this month 
whether any openings remain 
for student jobs. Students de- 
siring employment should 
contact Koterba in the Admin- 
istration Building, ext. 207. 

"I cannot help students 
unless they bring problems to 
my attention," Koterba ob- 
served. "I think it's important 
for students to have jobs."

How to Live at the Top 

by David Frye 

Sometime this year I expect to hear "The Totem Pole 
Speech"-an admonition from some administrator that we 
are at the top of the totem pole, that we are the student 
leaders of LVC, and that our education here prepares us to 
become leaders in society. 

Our status here will pass soon enough, but we have to 
believe our liberal arts education does equip us, at least 
partially, to form responsible opinions, to make moral 
choices and to communicate them, in short, to lead others. 

So what characteristics should we look for in ourselves, 
characteristics which blossom during our years in college? 
One is nobility — not the nobility of crowns and crimson 
robes, but the kind of nobility described by Dietrich 
Bonhoeffer, a German Lutheran pastor and theologian 
imprisoned and executed by the Third Reich for his part in a 
plot to assassinate Adolf Hitler. 

He wrote: 

Nobility arises from and exists by sacrifice, courage, 
and a clear sense of duty to oneself and society, by ex- 
pecting due regard for itself as a matter of course; and it 
shows an equally natural regard for others, whether 
they are of higher or of lower degree. 
We will not achieve nobility without effort, without recog- 
nizing our own worth, or without valuing others. 

A second quality we need to foster in ourselves is the 
courage to think critically. Senator Robert Kennedy expressed 
this when he said 
The future does not belong to those who are content 
with today, apathetic toward common problems and 
their fellow man alike, timid and fearful in the face of 
new ideas and bold projects. Rather it will belong to 
those who can blend passion, reason, and courage in a 
personal commitment to the ideals and great enterprises 
of American society. It will belong to those who see that 
wisdom can only emerge from the clash of contending 
views, the passionate expression of deep and hostile 
beliefs. Plato said: 'A life without criticism is not worth 

College gives us the chance to commit ourselves to ideals, 
to test our views and to examine critically our lives. 

A third, and fairly elusive, quality is a sense of subtlety. 
The ancient Chinese philosopher, Laotzu, captured this 
quality in the following expression: 

A leader is best 

When people barely know that he exists, 

Not so good when people obey and acclaim him, 

Worst when they despise him. 

'Fail to honor people, 

They fail to honor you;' 

But of a good leader, who talks little, 

When his work is done, his aim fulfilled, 

They will all say, 'We did this ourselves.' 

So let us strive to become leaders, displaying nobility, 
courageously critical thought, and subtlety of purpose and 
action. Then we will live up to our potentials as liberally 
educated persons. 

Frosh Survival List 

by Peter Johansson 

We're back. Back at old LVC. The summer of '83 is gone. 
Over. Kiss it goodbye. Right now, we're back to the old grind 
of classes, studying, and barely passing. Fear and Loathing in 
Annville, without a break until Thanksgiving, nine long and 
wretched weeks away. 

Thank God for one thing. The admissions department has 
graciously provided us with sport for the semester. Like sadis- 
tic ten-year-old boys greeting a box of paraplegic kittens, we 
welcome the freshman class. Yes, you freshmen will be our 
upper-class recreation for the semester. Like rogue elephants 
in an African village, like Hurricane Agnes in Wilkes-Barre, 
like Carrie at the prom, we sure are glad you're here. 

How can we thank you for the hours of amusement you're 
certain to provide? Perhaps by offering some helpful survival 

hints. A little list, perhaps, to guide you on the path of 
nervous disorder. The stuff you didn't hear during 
Orientation Weekend. To wit: 

1) There are a lot of sick people in the world, and one of 
them designed the Garber Science Center. Don't go in there. 
Ever. Not even if you have class. You'll get hopelessly lost 
and never find your way out. Any building without windows 
is either too insecure or too paranoid to be trusted. 

2) The new Intervisitation policy is a wonderful thing. It 
will bring social progress and harmony to LVC. Here's how 
it works: 

— No male may enter any female dorm past midnight 
without an armed escort. Once inside the girl's room, a TV 
camera records all actions and transmits them, via satellite, 
directly to the girl's parents. As he leaves in the morning, the 
male must wear the girl's name and room number on a large 
red sign around his neck, which must be signed by at least five 
RA's, one dean, and his academic advisor. All males 
receiving such signs must keep them on until homecoming, 
when they will lead the homecoming parade. 

— Any female entering a male dorm after midnight deserves 
what she gets. 

— Aboriginal headhunters are still not allowed in Vickroy 
between 2:00 AM and 1 :00 PM Tuesdays. 

3) Student council movies make cheap dates on weekends. 
That is if you don't mind watching the third showing of 
Gidget Gets Upset, Abbot and Costello Meet the Marquis de 
Sade, or 101 Dalmations and Son of Flubber Rescue Nanny 
and the Professor from Dr. Moreau's Island of the Night of 
the Living Mr. Potatoheads, 3-D. 

4) The following are not valid excuses for cutting classes: 
— I couldn't find my pants. 

— Someone pennied in the dorm. 

— My goldfish has leukemia and I couldn't leave him. 

— Godzilla ate my textbooks. 

—Someone put napalm in my eggs. 

The following are the only valid excuses for cutting classes: 

— I overslept. 

— I forgot. 

There are, of course, other helpful hints, but why tip our 
mitts too soon? Welcome, freshmen. It's good to be back. 

Drought Hits Quittie 

Dear Editor, 

Over the course of years it has become a tradition that soon 
after the effects of registration have worn off upperclassmen 
sit back and ponder the previous year's collection of mem- 
ories which have been stored in the Quittie. This is done with 
a great deal of "good humored complaining" caused mainly 
by differences in opinion followed by an overall acceptance of 
the book. This year, however, this sequence of events will be 
postponed till the end of first semester. 

Due to editorial problems, the 1983 Quittie will not arrive 
till December. Our publishers, Taylor Publishing Company, 
is presently completing the final work on the '83 Quittie in 
order to get it to us as quickly as possible. 

The '83 Quittie is in well-practiced hands, but the 1984 
needs the student help. Due to a breakdown in communica- 
tion, interest and public opinion have been waning. This 
occurrence it itself will make it very hard to try and produce a 
well-organized, interesting yearbook. For this reason an 
enthusiastic staff is needed. At this time we do not have one 
(prior to Wednesday's meeting). 

The work on the '84 Quittie will be done by the staff. I am 
only here to foresee what is occurring, make arrangements, 
organize and make final checks on the layouts and copy. 
These are my responsibilities as editor — I am not here to force 
my ideas on the staff or do all the work on my own. I also do 
not expect anyone to let me get away with it. 

I could continue but the important points have been pre- 
sented. It is now the choice of the student body as to how they 
will accept it. 

Thank you, 

Cora A. Bretz

Editor's Note; The 
following is the first of a 
five-part series of columns 
on Career Planning. In the 
columns, David Evans, 
Director of Career Planning 
and Placement, will answer 
some of the most 
commonly asked questions 
concerning career 
planning. The series will 
continue in the next issue 
of The Quad. 

Attitude #1: Actually looking 
for a job is something to do 
when you're a senior. Is the 
attitude safe? No. 

There is a period of time 
between the initial action to 
enter a career and actually en- 
tering it. The national average 
is reported by several sources. 
Some are as low as 6 weeks 
and some as high as 1 year. 
Our experience has shown that 
a college student should plan 
for 3 to 6 months. That 
assumes that you know what 
you're looking for before you 
begin your search. It also 
assumes that you have time to 
look. If not, plan for 1 year. 
We are referring to a job 
which is either in a career you 
like, or which directly con- 
tributes to it through training 
or experience. 

What causes the atttitude? 

A college student has com- 
pleted 12 years of school 
before he or she arrives here. 
Each year has a clearly defined 
beginning, and an ending. 
September begins the 7th 
grade, for example, and June 
ends it (we hope). Summer is a 
totally separate period of time 
related to school as a vacation 
from it. For 12 years, then, the 
pattern has been "September 
starts, June ends, Summer 
break, September starts, June 
ends ..." and so forth. One is 
literally conditioned to think 
in single year measures of 
time. In college, we maintain 
four years as separate, each 
with a name of its own. We 
divide each of these into quar- 
ters or semesters with 
decisions needed for each. Is it 
any wonder, then, that a stu- 
dent thinks, of the future as 
"next term" or "next year" 
more than "after I've gradu- 
ated?" It is a matter of life- 
time conditioning. Even at 
graduation, one thinks 
"career entry" more than

"LVC Presents" Series 

"LVC Presents..." for the 
1983-84 school year began 
with the topic Contemporary 
Religion. The series is in five 
parts and will run through the 
month of September. 

Kenneth Woodward opened 
the series addressing the ques- 
tion "Does religion really 
make a difference?" Other 
issues to be covered are "What 
is a Cult?" with speaker 
Wallace Clark, and "The 
Religious Right Today: Where 
and Why?" with speaker Cal 
Thomas, a member of the 
Moral Majority. The series 
will conclude with a panel dis- 
cussion featuring local 
Annville clergy representing 
different religious perspec- 

Topics in the past have 
ranged from "Natural 
Living" to colorful sports 
commentary. The series on 

natural living inspired the 
topic of cults for this year. 

The selection of speakers is 
determined by a committee 
composed of both faculty and 
students, headed by Chaplain 
John Abernathy Smith. This 
year they hope to expand the 
membership to include five 
instead of three student repre- 
sentatives. Chaplain Smith 
stressed the need for campus 
involvement in the types of 
topics students would be 
interested in, as well as their 
reaction to them. 

Future "LVC Presents..." 
this year will include 
"Adventure" and "Creativ- 
ity." The "Adventure" series 
will feature speaker Burt Web- 
ber, an Annville native who 
was part of an expedition that 
discovered a Spanish sunken 
treasure ship. 

LVC Welcomes....

Calling All Video Freaks 

Volunteers are sought for a 
study on the retention of 
video-game skills. The study is 
being conducted by Dr. 
Marshall B. Jones, Depart- 
ment of Behavioral Science, 
The Milton S. Hershey Medi- 
cal Center, and is funded by 
the U.S. Army Research Insti- 
tute. Students will be paid a 
single lump sum of $50 at the 
end of the study for their par- 
ticipation. All students with 
normal vision and manual 
skills are eligible to apply. 

Participation will involve 
one hour taking conventional 
psychological tests early in the 
fall semester, followed by five 
half-hour sessions playing a 
single Atari video game. In the 
second semester, following the 

Christmas break, participation 
will involve another three half- 
hour sessions playing the same 
video game. The total time 
commitment for participation 
in the study is approximately 
five hours. Participants will be 
asked not to play the game 
they practice on their own time 
until after the experiment has 
been concluded. 

The purpose of the 
experiment is to study the loss 
of microcomputer-video skills 
over a period of no practice. 
The experiment involves no in- 
vasive procedures, no sensitive 
questioning, and no 
deception. For further 
information please contact 
Mrs. Karli in the Dean of the 
Faculty's Office. 

Stanson Profiles Freshmen 

by Pete Johansson 

Lebanon Valley College 
welcomed 281 new students 
this year, including 46 transfer 
students, according to 
Gregory Stanson, Dean of Ad- 

This brings the total of full- 
time and part-time day 
students to 942. The full-time 
enrollment stands at 826. The 
continuing education program 
now enrolls more than 100 
students. Despite a sagging 
economy, the enrollment 
seems to be holding steady. 

Though most students come 
to LVC from Pennsylvania, 
New Jersey and Maryland, 
this year's group includes 
some from as far away as 
Alaska, Japan and Italy, as 
well as LVC's first student 
from the People's Republic of

a strong effort by the Admis- 
sions department. 

Stanson is especially pleased 
with the Open House program 
and the Presidential Scholar- 
ship program. As a result of 


Marquette stated. He 
explained that the reason for 
the condition is "in the event 
of an emergency, we can 
account for everyone in the 
building." Currently, there is 
no specific time when a guest 
becomes an "overnight guest." 

Marquette said the 
condition came as a 
recommendation from the 
Board committee and is 
included in the background 
paper, which outlines the 
Board's stipulations 
concerning the policy. 
Although the Board stipulated 
that registration of overnight 
guests must be in the policy, 
the registration policy was 
devised by the Dean of 
Students office with input 
from Resident Assistants. 

The Resident Assistants and 
the Dean of Students Office 
designed the registration 
process during the summer RA 
workshops. "I believe we 
came up with a consensus that 
this was the best way," said 
Marquette. Wendy Kauffman, 
a resident assistant in Mary C. 
Green Hall, said, "I felt that 
everything we said at the 
workshops was taken into con- 
sideration and incorporated 
into the policy," including the 
registration process. 

Marquette said he realizes 
students would "rather not 
register" their guests and 
added that other processes will 
be considered after the Board 
evaluates the new policy. 

The policy already has 
received criticism for the es- 

the Open House program 53 
new students are attending the 
Valley, and Stanson is 
planning three open houses for 
this year, including the first 
Friday Open House in 
November. Ninety-two 
freshmen are here as a result 
of the Presidential Scholarship 
Program, despite the February 
blizzard that forced the post- 
ponement of one of the testing 
dates last year. 

Business and computer 
related majors are still strong 
here, as they are across the 
country. Stanson expects the 
first full year of the Garber 
Science Center will bring more 
students in the sciences to 

Academically, this year's 
freshman class is consistent 
with freshman classes of past 
years. 72 percent finished in 
the top two-fifths of their 
graduating classes. Although 
the SAT scores are down a bit 
from last year, they are still far 
above the national average. 

Stanson feels that SAT 
scores, nationally, will pick up 
as the high schools begin 
getting back to some of the 
more basic facets of 

Stanson says he detects a 
serious attitude in the new 
students. While this may or 
may not be job-related, 
Stanson notes that many of 
the new students are very car- 
eer conscious. Stanson also 
pointed out that more anH 
more of the non-traditional 
age group (20 years and older) 
are entering LVC as full-time 
students for the first time. 

As the economy picks up, 
Stanson expects enrollments to 
increase, both nationally and 
at LVC. Stanson believes that 
the college's accent on 
personalized attention to 
students will continue to 
attract high school seniors to 
LVC. Stanson notes that many 
students are bringing 
individual needs to college 
with them, and LVC is in a 
position to help them.

problems with the policy, I 
think we can work them out."

College Relations, under the 
leadership of vice-president 
Howard Applegate, includes 
the offices of Admissions, De- 
velopment, Alumni Services, 
Information Services and 

The Admissions Office will 
remain essentially the same, 
headed by Dean of 
Admissions Gregory Stanson. 
Alumni Services, directed by 
Robert Unger, will keep 
alumni in touch with the col- 
lege, updating graduates on 
college activities through 
mailed publications. The 
office also coordinates Home-

The Development Office, 
headed by Polly Ehrgood, is 
concerned with the financial 
needs of the College. It seeks 
funds for faculty and student 
projects, endowment and 
external support for financial 
aid. This year the 
Development Office hopes to 
increase the annual giving 
fund by at least 25 percent. 

Information Services is di- 
rected by recent LVC graduate 
Dawn Humphrey. It prepares 
releases for the media 
concerning LVC activities 
and people. Mary Williams 

heads the new Publications 
Office. She will oversee publi- 
cations such as the catalogue, 
the Student Handbook and 
various brochures. 

According to Applegate, all 
of these services function as a 
bridge between the college and 
outside sources. College 
Relations also works as a link 
between the college and the 
Methodist church. 

Applegate believes that 
these changes will provide 
smoother relationships among 
the various constituencies of 
the college. He stressed, how- 
ever, that no change that is 
valuable is ever easy, adding 
that College Relations is "like 
a battleship; you can't turn it 
around fast."

which includes about 10,000 
pipes, is considered to be 
among the best in this country. 
Getz's program will include

LVC Feels The Heat 

by Denise Mastovich 

For the second year in a row 
the Flying Dutchman football 
team opened its season with a 
romp by Gettysburg College. 
This year the score was 56-3. 

Inexperience and lack of 
depth plus an experienced, ag- 
gressive Bullet team combined 
to shut down the Valley 
offense. The near 100° 
temperature helped to wear 
down the Valley defense in the 
second half. 

According to coach Lou 

Sorrentino, the young squad 
allowed too many mistakes. 
"When Gettysburg jumped on 
top, we got discouraged," he 
said. Sorrentino added that he 
feels some more hard work 
can bring the team back from 
this opening loss and result in 
a good season. 

Sorrentino is basing his 
optimism on a nucleus of 
returning veterans. Quarter- 
back Jim Algeo threw well 
when he had a chance to set

Soccer Bigger and Better 

by Tracy Wenger 

Led by two 4-year letter- 
men, the LVC soccer team will 
begin its season with three 
away games. Senior goalie Jed 
Duryea allowed only two goals 
per game in the second half of 
last season and will serve as 
co-captain of the squad this 
year. The other co-captain, 
senior Joe Morrison, will pro- 
vide a great deal of offensive 
aggressiveness at the striker 

In addition to these four- 
year lettermen, nine varsity 
players are returning. "We are 
good," says Coach Bruce Cor- 
rell, "but we do not have 
enough numbers." He adds 
that any injuries this season 
will severely hamper the team. 

"Our goals this year are to 
stay healthy and consistent," 
says Correll. "We are big and 
better than last year, but the 
inexperience of our younger 
players means inconsistency." 

Freshman Tom Bradwell, a 
mid-fielder, will help to 
combat that inconsistency, as 
he is what Correll terms, 
"probably the best freshman 
we've ever had." Although he 
is expected to lead the offense, 
Bradwell will not have to do it 
alone. Freshmen Foster 
Kennedy, who is "excellent in 
one-on-one situations," and 
Kenny Baker, who has "good 
speed," will provide support 
from the wing positions. 

Sophomores Erik Enters 

(sweeper), Scott Martin (mid- 
fielder) and Brian Gockley 
(mid-field) contibute 
experience to the LVC squad. 
The most improved player 
award from last year goes to 
Paul "Gonzo" Gouza. 

On September 17, LVC 
travels to King's College and 
on September 21, the team will 
play Western Maryland in 
another away contest. "King's 
College should be a good, even 
game," says Correll. 
"However, Western Maryland 
is one of the best teams in the 
MAC. We're in there, but we 
have to find out if we have 
enough depth to handle teams 
of that (Western Maryland's) 

by Denise Mastovich 

LVC's field hockey team 
stifled a nationally ranked 
F and M team on Tuesday 
as the teams tied at zero 
in double overtime. 

Prior to the game, new 
coach, Kathy Tierney said, 
"We will play our type of 
game and we will play well." 
According to Tierney's pred- 
iction, the LVC women frus- 
trated F and M by cutting off 
their short passes and forcing 
them to play the long ball. 

The LVC women showed 
cohesiveness, endurance, and 
a great deal of strength during 
the ninety minutes of play. 

"The team shows great po- 
tential and a lot of determina- 
tion," said Tierney. The 
experience of co-captains 
Sheila McElwee and Mary 
Jean Bishop, as well as the de- 
termination of seniors Deb 

Detwiler and Mary 
McNamara, should stabilize 
the team. 

"Success will not be 
measured by the team record, 
but how well we play each 
game as individuals and as a 
team," Tierney said. She con- 
tinued, "The less experienced 
players should think less and 
react quicker in order to 
become more confident in exe- 
cuting their talents." Other 
starting uppperclassmen are 
Dicksie Boehler, Jenny 
Deardorf, Tracy Wenger, 
and Tammy Raudabaugh. 

Even though the schedule is 
rough, the team has the po- 
tential to beat everv opponant. 

The next home game will be 
against Gettysburg Saturday, 
Sept. 17, at 10:30 a.m., 
followed by an away game at 
York College on Sept. 20. 

Cross-Country Faces 
Demanding Schedule 

by Tracy Wenger 

"I'm cautiously optimistic 
about this season," says cross 
country coach Bob Unger. 
"We are stronger than last 
year, and the squad is larger. 
That in itself is a benefit." 

However, the team faces a 
demanding schedule, as the 
first eight teams in the confer- 
ence meet are on the LVC 
agenda. The schedule 
represents the top opponents 
in the MAC, a conference that 
is very strong nationally. 

Hoping to combat this 
tough schedule successfully 
are co-captains Lyle Trumble 
and Chris Jasman, along with 

the other members of the 

In the LVC Invitational 
Meet on September 10, the 
men's team finished 12th 
overall in a field of 17. This is 
impressive, considering the 
squad finished 17th out of 18 
teams last season. 

Individually, Lyle Trumble 
recorded a time of 27 minutes 
and 10 seconds, while Chris 
Jasman ran a 29:06 and fresh- 
man John Hibshman recorded 
a 30:09 time. 

The women's team finished 
10th out of 10 teams, but three 
teams did not finish runners. 

Leading the women were Julie 
Sealander with a time of 27 
minutes and 22 seconds, while 
Stephanie Butter recorded a 
28:12 and Nicole Emerich had 
a time of 29:09. 

Unger says, "I'm optimis- 
tic. Without much experience, 
we have several women run- 
ning respectable times. There 
is not a very large gap between 
times they're posting, which 
will be beneficial in dual meet 
competition." There are eight 
women on the team this year, 
and Coach Unger says that 
there is "an unusually cohe- 
sive spirit" among the women.

New Library Now 
Under Discussion 

by Scott Kirk 

With the aid of a recent 
proposal, plans to build a new 
library with better facilities 
may not be as far off as 

A major foundation is now 
considering a grant which 
would make construction of 
the facility possible. Howard 
L. Applegate, vice-president

the shelves in Gossard

books, bound periodicals,

Thomas Presents 
Political Views

by Tracy Wenger 

Vice-president of the Moral 
Majority, Cal Thomas, 
answered the question "The 
Religious Right: Where Is It 
Going and Why?" in the LVC 
Presents series on September 
20, 1983. Thomas, who 
considers his nickname "Jerry 
Falwell's Hitman" a compli- 
ment, addressed his topic from 
both a professional and an in- 
dividual point of view. 

Thomas began by defining 
the Moral Majority, founded 
by Jerry Falwell in June of 
19 79, as a political body of 
Pastors, priests and rabbis 
concerned with where America 
ls going morally. He stressed, 
"We are not all born-again 
Christians," and added that 
^0% of the group's member- 
s hip is Catholic, with smaller 
^umbers of Jews, Mormons 

The Search Goes On 

and other denominations. 

The Moral Majority has 
been accused of trying to legis- 
late morality and undermine 
the first amendment; however, 
according to Thomas, "We 
simply call people who feel the 
same and register and organize 
them to vote. We make a 
stand, and people can agree or 
disagree." He defended the 
Moral Majority's extensive in- 
volvement in politics, stating 
that the Methodists, 
Catholics, and Presbyterians 
all have offices in 
Washington, D.C. 

In a nation where 50% of 
the people do not come out to 
the polls to vote, Thomas 
emphasized the need for an 
American "Social 
Conscience." He also noted a

The process of selecting 
Lebanon Valley College's next 
president is time-consuming 
and confidential, according to 
F. Allen Rutherford Jr., chair- 
man of the Board of Trustees 
and of the Presidential Search 

The committee, which meets 
every Thursday, consists of 
members for "all constituen- 
cies — one student representa- 
tive, one Administrative staff 
member, three faculty 
members, myself, an alumni 
representative, a member of 
the Eastern Pennsylvania Con- 
ference of the United Metho- 
dist Church and a member 
from the Central Conference 
of the UMC, said Rutherford. 

"The responsibilities of a 
collegiate presidential search 

committee always are conduc- 
ted in an atmosphere of com- 
plete confidentiality so as to 
protect the privacy of individ- 
ual canditates . 

"Thus, the Lebanon Valley 
College Presidential Search 
Committee shall not confirm 
or deny the candidacy of any 
individual," he added. 

According to Rutherford, 
the candidates come from all 
parts of the country, from 
business and industry as well 
as education. Rutherford ex- 
plained that anyone may nom- 
inate a candidate and added 
that many of the candidates 
under consideration have been 
nominated by others. The 
committee reviews all of the 
nominations and then contacts 
the candidates for references 

and asks them to apply. 

The committee has received 
110 nominations as of Sept. 
22. They will continue to

will narrow the number to 15- 
20, then 10-12 and then 
"down to a few." 

When the committee has 
narrowed its choice to a few, 
they will conduct interviews 
with the candidates 
"preferably off-campus," 
according to Rutherford. 
Once they have chosen the 
final candidate (by Dec. 31), 
the committee will present 
him/her to the Board as a 
nominee. Rutherford said that 
the Trustees will then vote and 
make the final decision to

Dialogue— The Moral Majority— Dialogue 

by Mark Scott 

During his recent visit to 
campus, Moral Majority vice- 
president Cal Thomas brought 
up many of the very good 
points of this highly 
controversial group. For all 
the criticism and controversy 
surrounding this group, its 
positive aspects outweigh its 
bad reputation. 

The Moral Majority is not a 
gang of religious fanatics 
compelled only to impose their 
view of morality on an un- 
willing public. They are a 
dynamic force of millions of 
Americans determined not to 
lose sight of the Judaeo-Chris- 
tian values upon which this na- 
tion has been built, and which 
have made it great. They are 
not bent on legislating 
morality either, though 
Thomas clearly points out that 
every time a law is passed, a 
judgment of what is moral or 
otherwise is made. 

The Moral Majority's 
uncompromising commitment 
to the high values of family 
life and righteous living is ad- 
mirable. Their denouncement 
of those factors which 

threaten the very foundations 
of our family and moral values 
is clear. Their opposition to 
the social scourge of homosex- 
uality is firm. Their refusal to 
accept it as an "alternate life- 
style," and their recognizance 
of it as a deep-seated personal 
disorder, is assured. Their 
condemnation of the high 
divorce rate is a vote of con- 
fidence for the sanctity of 
marriage. They reject abortion 
as an acceptable method of 
birth control because it shows 
a lack of commitment to the 
right of a human life to exist. 
Their stand against the social 
evils of pornography and 
drugs shows a deep concern 
for the vulnerability of our 
society's young people. 

The Moral Majority's stand 
on these issues is exemplary. 
Against great opposition, they 
uphold the basic tenets of our 
forefathers. They convey a 
strong code of ethics for 
society. In these times, when 
too many are casting away the 
values of past generations, the 
Moral Majority is standing 
firm and saying loudly and 
clearly, "NO!"

The Moral Majority is one 
of the most heavily criticized 
groups in America. It seems 
everywhere they turn they're 
being mocked, ridiculed, or 
downright slandered. Well, no 
wonder. After hearing Cal 
Thomas, Vice President of the 
Moral Majority, speak on 
campus last week, one can 
only conclude that they've 
brought it on themselves. 

The basic problem with the 
Moral Majority is that they're 
consistently inconsistant. They 
jerk around from one contra- 
dictory source to another, 
resting on one idea long 
enough to make a point, then 
leaping around somewhere 
else to discount it. Cal Thomas 
is no exception. His talk on 
September 20 was not so much 
a defense of policy, but more 
like Molly Hatchet madly 
pogo-sticking her way around 
the Bible. Thomas seemed to 
be daring his audience to make 
sense of what he said. For 

— Thomas insisted that the 
Moral Majority is not trying to 
impose its views on anyone. 
Then he turned around and 
pointed to the 1954 Brown vs. 
Board of Education case. He 
said that most of the country 
wasn't ready to end 
segregation, but the step had 
to be taken, clearly an example 
of a few individuals imposing 
their morality on the rest of 
the country. He went on to say 
that the Moral Majority is 
trying to accomplish the same 
thing with abortion. 

— Thomas said that homo- 
sexuals should be "free from 
harrassment," yet denied 
them the right to hold public 

— Thomas somehow linked 
pro-Americanism with a 
strong nuclear defense, a con- 
nection I fail to see logically. 
Though they claim to be a 
Christian organization, the 
Moral Majority walks all over 
Jesus' message of love on this 
issue. The Moral Majority is 
against the Soviet Union, and 
sees it as an enemy, yet says 
the Soviet people are unwilling 
prisoners of the State. Yet the 
Moral Majority wants to 
punish the Soviet Union by 
stopping grain shipments, a 
move that can only hurt the 
Soviet people. One can only 
guess how the use of nuclear 
weapons will stop communism 
without harming the people. 
Apparently, the Moral 
Majority sees armed force as 
the only weapon against an 
enemy. Perhaps they should 
pick up some of Gandhi's 

To become the dominant 
political force they hope to be, 
the Moral Majority has got to 
start making some sense. If 
there is logic behind their 
views, it is being poorly 
presented. Until they can offer 
some reasonably sound views, 
the Moral Majority will 
continue to reap abuse from 
the public and the press. 
Rhetoric may be fine for Jerry 
Falwell and Cal Thomas, but 
it doesn't work on a fed-up 
American public. 


Ode to an Old Dog — Pip and features editor Gloria Pochekailo [the one in the sweatsuit] 
flash their canines for the camera. Pip is a ten-year-old burdened beast whose amiable 
profile has gladdened the hearts of generations of college students. photo by Dave Fermzza 

by Gloria Pochekailo 

As we return to the LVC 
campus, we find the same old 
things: the tree in the quad, 
the buildings, the workers, etc. 
This year however, one of 
those things has not remained 
routine. Pip, that lovable, 
hefty animal of the LVC 
campus, is here, but has not 
maintained her daily vigils. 
No, that pup normally sniffing 
at the bushes, inspecting the 
trees and poles, and remaining 
oblivious to the outer world 
has fallen on bad times. 

Pip, found 10 years ago at 
midnight in Delaware, has 
taken ill. Although she still 
remains peppy as always and 
still readily accepts food when 
offered, Pip is not in good 
shape. Lately she has spent 
most of her time in her kitchen 
bed, quietly laying there, drif- 
ting in and out of sleep. It has 
been diagnosed that Pip, 

according to the latest tests, 
has cancer. 

The past few weeks have 
gone badly for Pip; she seems 
to be getting worse. Her owner 
is extremely distressed and 
requests the college students 
avoid feeding her. "It's not 
good for her while she's on 
medication." It is indeed 
with a heavy heart that this 
reporter writes these facts. Pip 
seemed to be the part of the 
Lebanon Valley College 
community that was always 
happy and refused to allow 
anything to bother her. She 
has participated in Spring Arts 
Festivals, made her acting 
debut on the LVC stage 
{Carnival) and was nominated 
for graduation speaker for the 
class of '79. 

Now what will happen? The 
most we can do is keep her in 
our prayers.

We Need Traditional Burnings 

by David Frye 

Lebanon Valley needs to return to its traditions. So ob- 
served Dean of the Faculty Richard Reed at the Opening 
Convocation for second semester last January. For once, stu- 
dents listened to a person of authority and acted en masse 
within a few weeks. With the help of severe flurries, students 
pulled off the most exciting activity in recent memory here at 

Other traditions have not fared quite so well. Long 
Weekend is one tradition to fall by the wayside, struck down 
with good reason by the same Dean to imply that a few good, 
traditional pranks could boost college morale. 

What will deleting Long Weekend do to college morale? Or 
more pointedly, can students (and professors) persevere from 
the blast furnace of August to the ice box of mid-November 
without Long Weekend? More than students need Long 
Weekend to catch up on studies, everyone needs a break from 

Since we all need a respite, and since everyone appreciates 

traditions, I'd like to suggest starting a new tradition to add 
some spice to our lives. 

Let's have the First Annual LVC All-Campus Fall Cookout 
and Bonfire. By Friday evening, October 21, the nippy air 
should make a crackling fire cozily warm. Apple cider and 
pumpkin pie will be in season. Hamburgers, hot dogs, dough- 
nuts, s'mores and hot chocolate all taste especially delicious 
when eaten outside on a crisp autumn evening. 

This could be an evening for students, faculty, administra- 
tors and college staff to gather together for a retreat from the 
everyday world to enjoy fun, food, and fellowship. 

Some people will say this "dumb" idea will never catch on. 
Let's give it a try. If you want to show your support for the 
First Annual LVC All-Campus Fall Cookout and Bonfire, 
just cut out the ballot on this page, fill it out, sign your name, 
and slip it into "The Box'' next to the college center desk. 

We've shown everyone we enjoy a good tradition. Now 
let's show everyone we can start a new one as well. 


A Few Words of Reihlistic Advice 

by Pete Johansson 

C'mon, everybody, get with it! I'm getting sick of all these 
complaints about Cheryl Reihl. She's doing one hell of a job! 
Admit it. Wasn't it fun pushing watermelons around the 
College Center parking lot, and then eating them a month 
later? Wasn't it great to enjoy a Seven & Seven without the 
Seven at the opening of the Snack Shop, three weeks after the 
semester began? Sure it was! And just look at what we've got 
coming up for second semester: 

— The First Annual College Center Road Rally. The con- 
testants are in the Quad in their Big Wheels ... and they're 
off! Into the college center, a hard left into the East Dining 
Hall ... two laps, then into the kitchen ... and into the West 
Dining Hall! Out the doors, down the straightaway, left at 
the desk, and down the steps (watch the hairpin turn on the 
landing)! Through the bookstore, and into the Snack Shop 
for the checkered flag! All contestants then relax with non-al- 
coholic martinis. 

—Pumpkin Olympics, Pork Chop Olympics, Sea Legs 
Olympics, Meatloaf Olympics, Mashed Potatoes with Gravy 
Olympics, Pizza Burgers Olympics, ... and of course the 
Sunday Brunch Olympics. 

—All kinds of great dances! One in the Snack Shop, one in 
the basement of Silver, one in the Fellowship Lounge, three in 
the Ad building, and an outdoor sock hop in the Quad (Feb. 

—Brady Bunch Night. We've got the final episode of the 
Brady Bunch on videotape. Come as your favorite character! 

—Concerts galore! Free tickets to the Annville-Cleona 
Symphony Orchestra, the Hershey Med School Glee Club, 
the Palmyra Ballet, Wayne Newton & Johnny Cash Together, 
and Jesus Spits, the famous Christian Punk Band. 

Atta girl, Cheryl! You sure are worth whatever this college 
is paying you to come up with ideas like that! Keep up the 
good work. 


To: Dean Reed, Ad. Bldg 

Dear Dean Reed: 

I support this new tradition. 

I would like to help organize it.

Editor's Note: The following 
is the second column in a five- 
part series on attitudes toward 
career planning. The contribu- 
ting columnist is David Evans, 
Director of Career Planning 
and Placement, located in the 
Carnegie Building. 

Attitude #3: Before I decided 
on a career, I need to know 
what's available. Is the atti- 
tude safe? No. 

We have access to surveys of 
demand for specific careers. 
The federal government 
publishes an Occupational 
Outlook quarterly, the College 
Placement Council publishes 
information, corporations 
issue press releases, etc. These 
are reasonably accurate, but 
you must understand that all 
such surveys are based on esti- 
mates provided by employers 
themselves. It is in the 
employer's best interest to 
ensure a supply of employees 
which is large enough to pre- 
vent a shortage. The 
employer's survival depends 
upon it! But don't blame 
them. Our entire economy 
depends upon it! The supply 
of people must also be large 
enough to allow selection of 
the best candidates from a 
group of applicants. Employer 
estimates will err on the high 
side, so surveys of demand will 
be overstated. Not by much, 
we hope, but overstated they 
will be. Yet this is the lesser of 
two problems. We do not have 
reliable sources of information 
on supply. Colleges and Uni- 
versities maintain their records 
separately, students change 
majors or career interests and 
attrition rates vary from year 
to year, continuing education 
programs provide part-time 
education at various rates of 
preparation for new careers, 
and so on. As a result, careers 
which appear "available" 
when a student enters college 
may be scarce indeed four 
years later.

Life in the Fast Lane 

LVC Presents ... "Life in 
the Fast Lane," a four-part 
series on drug and alcohol 

The series begins on Oct. 18 
with "Boozin' It Up," a 
controlled drinking 
experiment. Richard Keppel, a 
state police recruiter from 
Lancaster, will handle the 

In the experiment, subjects 
are given measured amounts 
of alcohol. The subjects are 
then asked to perform simple 
tests. After these tests, the 
audience will be asked to give 
opinions whether the subjects 
are intoxicated or not. 

Finally, a breathalizer test 
will prove the audience's 
responses right or wrong. In 
the past, Mr. Keppel has set up 
this experiment at Franklin 
and Marshall College and 
Millers ville State University. 

Chaplain John Albernathy 

Smith said the experiment may 
have to be pre-taped since it 
may take more than an hour. 

The second part, on Oct. 25, 
will include a possible film and 
discussion led by Rick Esterly. 
Mr. Esterly is the executive 
director of the Chit Chat 
Center, in close connection 
with the Wernersville State 

Chaplain Smith's call to 
Paul Warfield of the Cleve- 
land Browns led him to Dr. 
Robert Forney, toxicologist 
and consultant to the Browns. 
Dr. Forney will speak in the 
third part of "Life in the Fast 
Lane," on Nov. 1. 

Dr. Forney is known for his 
involvement in setting up what 
may be the best drug and alco- 
hol program in the N.F.L. 

The final program of the 
series, on Nov. 8, is still in 
question. Chaplain Smith did 
say that he would like to focus 

the final segment on the LVC 

The Convocation Commit- 
tee's ideas for the series came 
from "The Chemical People," 
a six-part television series 
dealing with drug and alcohol 
abuse in Central 
Pennsylvania, being run on 
PBS from Oct. 27 until Nov. 

Chaplain Smith said the 
"LVC Presents..." series is 
developed jointly by the 
Convocation Committee and 
the Dean of Students. 

According to Chaplain 

Smith, even after the topics 
are chosen, much work goes 
into the development of the 
programs. The programs were 
hard to work out after 
choosing the topic. In fact, the 
Convocation Committee is 
still working to complete 
several of the programs. 

Council Plans Budget -Thomas 

The Student Council has 
adopted a new method for de- 
termining budget allotments 
for the 1983-84 year. 

According to council 
member Lynn Cornelius, each 
club requiring student council 
funds was required, by 
September 23, to submit a pro- 
posed budget on paper for 
council deliberation. After all 
budgets were submitted, the 
council decided how much of 
the 1983-84 budget to allot to 
each organization. 

The clubs were then given 
an opportunity to discuss with 
the council their respective 
budgets. Budget Hearings ran 
from September 26-29. 

Council president Wendy 
Carter said that the new 
method was proposed to avoid 
any unfairness in budget allot- 

The former budgeting 
method did not require a 

budget to be submitted on 
paper before allotments were 

Therefore, said Carter, 
some clubs' budgets were af- 
firmed before others were sub- 
mitted. This method could 
have potentially favored those 
clubs who submitted budgets 

The student council now 
hopes that the new budgeting 
plan will avoid this situation, 
Carter added. 

Student Council Treasurer, 
Denise Mastovich, will reveal 
her recommended budget 
allotments to individual 
student organizations on 
September 30. Clubs may 
schedule Appeal Hearings if 
not satisfied with the 
recommended allotments. 

Clubs will receive letters 
informing them of allocations 
on October 3. 

"spirit of compromise to the 
world" which is spreading 
across America. "There are 
certain moral laws of the uni- 
verse, which if ignored, will 
produce consequences." 

Addressing the subject of 
National Defense, Thomas 
saw a need to respect what the 
USSR says and then react ac- 
cordingly. He said, "Evil 
needs to be repelled" and the 
only way the US can repel the 
USSR is to be strong— like a 
bully. When asked how he 
would have responded to the 
downing of the Korean 
airliner, Thomas said, "I 
would obviously have not used 
military action!" He suggested 
stopping subsidy to the USSR 
and tightening their credit. 

Another major concern of 
the Moral Majority, divorce 
laws, was addressed. Thomas

Acrylic works by Steve 
Nevada, New Oxford, are on

College's student center

Nevada, who is self-taught, 
does not pre-sketching, prefer- 
ring to work quickly, mixing 
his colors directly on the 
canvas. Using a large brush 
dipped into commercial jars of 

acrylic, Nevada applies the 
paint in lavish strokes, often 
using a palette knife or 
occasionally a small brush to 
add detail. His main concern, 
he says, is with the movement 
in blending the colors. 

Employed by the Office of 
Vocational Rehabilitation in 
Harrisburg, Nevada says he 
paints every evening to keep 

his skills sharp. His paintings 
range from free-wheeling 
pieces done in vibrant colors 
to more detailed subdued 
works that often feature 
ethereal backgrounds and 
figures. He views his work 
with an objective eye. "If I see 
a painting that hasn't attracted 
people and has been around 
for six months," he says, "I'll 
paint it out and start over."

pushed for a tightening of the 
laws, to help reverse the 
astounding 40% divorce rate. 

In a press conference 
following the lecture, Thomas 
entertained a question 
regarding the Moral 
Majority's stand on the 
"traditional family and the 
role of women." he responded 
by saying that women and men 
are equal — not second class 
citizens. "Many of them have 
talents that take them out of 
the home and some have 
talents that make them good 
wives and mothers," he 

stated. "However, these 
feminist textbooks that make 
women career-oriented to the 
exclusion of motherhood need 
to be changed." 

Answering a question 
regarding textbooks and 
censorship, Thomas said he is 
opposed to censorship except 
for security reasons and for 
youngsters. Promoting the 
"American Way," Thomas 
suggested that all books be 
allowed in the schools. He 
said, "The liberals can bring 
anything into the schools, but 
let our stuff in as well."

While the committee does 
not have a "portrait of the 
average candidate," 
Rutherford said all candidates 
"follow the criteria we're 
looking for. We haven't rated 
the traits and they are not 
listed by priority (in a list of 
qualifications written by the 
committee in July)." 

"We want someone with a 
commitment to LVC as a 
church-related college . . . some- 
one interested in the students 
and the faculty, in the social 
side as well as the academic 
side," commented Ruther- 
ford. "We're not trying to 
change the college." 

The following is a list of the 
desired presidential 
qualifications as described by 
the Presidential Search 
Committee in July, 1983: 

1. A strong personal 
commitment to the values 
inherent in a small, residential, 
liberal arts, church-related 
college; the type of education 
which seeks to integrate liberal 
arts disciplines and career 
programs; and the pursuit of 
academic excellence. 

2. The ability to formulate 
and execute long-range institu- 
tional and fiscal planning. 

3. The personal qualities 
and skills required to represent 
the College and to promote it 
effectively among various con- 
stituencies, friends, and 
outside interests. 

4. The skill and determina- 
tion to oversee the fund- 
raising activities of the College 
and to take an effective role 

5. The leadership traits to 
foster an atmosphere of 
energy, commitment, and 
consensus within the college 

6. The ability to make, 
communicate, and implement 
significant decisions after 
appropriate consultation. 

7. An awareness of the 
challenges facing small, 
private, liberal arts colleges 

8. The administrative skills 
necessary to direct, 
coordinate, and evaluate the 
various programs, operations, 
and personnel of the College.

Dutchmen Look Impressive; 
Offense Scores Big Numbers 

photo by Dave Ferruzza 

Through the woods— LVC cross country runner, Stephanie 
Butter, maintains a two-stride lead on her Elizabethtown 
opponent. The women lost to the Blue Jays last Thursday. 

by Denise Mastovich 

The Flying Dutchmen 
looked impressive even though 
they were defeated by Johns 
Hopkins University in the 
annual Homecoming game. 
The final score was 35-3 1 . 

Since Johns Hopkins was a 
"tight team," coach Lou 
Sorrentino believed LVC had 
to control the ball in order to 
beat them, and they did 
throughout the first half. 
Quarterback Jim Algeo's four 
touchdown passes proved to 
be a big part of the best 
offense shown in years. 
Sorrentino said, "The team 
played an excellent first half. 
Some of the breaks finally 
went our way."

Cross Country Loses Meet; 
Best Personal Times Posted 

by Julie Sealander 

Although the men's cross 
country team lost to 
Haverford last Saturday, each 
runner posted his best 
personal time. 

Coach Bob Unger is 
optimistic about the team. He 
said, "They are much further 
along in their conditioning 
than this time last year." The 
goal for the season according 
to the coach "is to run up to 
full potential." 

The women's team also lost 
in a meet against 
Elizabethtown on Thursday. 
"Even in defeat, however, the 
women performed well," 
Unger said, adding, "When a 
women's team jells, as this one 
has, the total performance of 
the team is sometimes better 
than the individual efforts." 

The coach is also positive 
about the women's team's 
future. He said that they have 
a very challenging schedule, 

made even more difficult by 
the fact that this is a first year 

"Experience is a factor in 
competition," said Unger, 
"and there is no doubt the 
other teams will have an edge 
on us in that area." 

Both the men's and 
women's teams will run on 
Saturday, when the men 
compete at Muhlenberg and 
the women participate in a 
mini-invitational of five teams 
at Moravian. 

buted to the defensive 
breakdown. "Defense did a 
fine job for three quarters but 
seemed to lapse after the 
fourth," said Sorrentino. 

In the second half LVC lost 
control of the ball, despite 
several good runbacks by Cliff 
Harro and John Taormina 
and Bob Krasley's kick-off 
return. Coach Sorrentino said, 
"The fumbles and the dropped 
passes allowed Johns Hopkins 
to get the ball at mid-field.

To Loss 

by John Kief el 

The Lebanon Valley 
Women's field hockey team 
gained a tie and a loss in two 
recent hard fought double- 
overtime games. 

The Valley tied York 
College 1-1 Sept. 20. Coach 
Kathy Tierney called the tie 
"frustrating." She said that 
York's hit and run style of 
play gave the Valley trouble. 
She also commented on the 
miserable condition of the 
playing field and the poor 
officiating in the game. 

The Valley outplayed York, 
outshooting them 17-2. Deb 
Detweiler scored the lone goal, 
but the Valley had two goals 
called back.

Soccer Plays Well, Loses 

by Tracy Wenger 

"Even though the scores of 
our games are terrible," says 
soccer coach Bruce Correll, 
"we have played well." With 
an 0-4 record, the soccer squad 
has scored only one goal this 
season. Netted by Joe 
Morrison, this goal came in a 
3-1 loss to Washington College 
on Sept. 14. 

The team then lost to King's 
College 2-0 in a game they 
"should have won" on Sept. 
17. Western Maryland stifled 
the LVC squad on Sept. 21 
with a 4-0 win. 

On Sept. 24, the LVC faced 
Dickinson at home in th 
annual Homecoming game. 
The Dutchmen, pitted against a 
Dickinson team of 12 seniors, 
lost the game 6-0. 

"In each game (except 
Dickinson)," says Correll, 
"we did not give up any goals 

in the first half of play, and 
they were very even games. 
But in each game, a silly 
mental error or a lack of com- 
munication caused us to give 
up a goal or score an own- 
goal." Correll adds that in 
each case, during the next four 
minutes after the goals, the 
squad gave up the rest of the 
goals which caused the terrible 
scores. "We get our heads 
down and there is a mental 
lapse," says Correll. 

Offensively, Correll feels 
that the team is too much in a

LVC Faculty Votes on Gen Ed 

1 my Hosteller & 

by Amy Hosteller 

The LVC faculty began 
voting today on the General 
Education Committee's 
Proposed philosphy, goals and 
Program for the General 
Education requirements. If 
Passed, the new requirements 
m ay take effect as early as first 
semester 1984. 

Faculty members received 
ballots at the faculty meeting 
held earlier today. Members 
h ave until Oct. 19 to return 
tr >eir votes, according to Dr. 
Arthur Ford, chairman of the 
general Education 

The proposal will be 
a . Cce Pted or rejected by a 
Sl mpl e majority vote, Ford 
s aid. "We have no idea (what 
the vote will be). We'll just 
Wa 't and see what the faculty 
J, ot es," he said. Ford added 
he committee has not "made 

the attempt to determine the 
voting" before the October 
faculty business meeting. 

Ford said the total process 
of devising the proposal took 
two years. The committee 
spent the first year obtaining 
the opinions of faculty and 
students on "what a general 
education program should do 
and be." During the second 
year, the committee worked 
with faculty members to devise 
the actual program. Straw 
votes were used to get faculty 
opinions and the results were 
incorporated into revisions of 
the program. "We think it 
represents the wishes of the 
faculty," Ford said. 

According to Ford, the 
proposal contains two major 
differences from the present 
general education require- 
ments system. The first 

difference, according to Ford, 
is the new proposal, if 
accepted, will allow more 
opportunity for "common ex- 
periences." Ford explained 
that more courses will be 
required and fewer courses 
will be offered as electives 
within the system. This will 
then promote the "common 

"We feel," said Ford, "at a 
small school, that it is impor- 
tant to take advantage of the 
fact that we are a small 

(The present system requires 
approximately 36-50 hours of 
general education require- 
ments; the new system requires 
44 hours.) 

The second difference is the 
depth and difficulty of the 
courses. "This program is, we 
feel, a more legitimate 

academic program, even more 
rigorous than we have now," 
Ford said. "The fact we are re- 
quiring a foreign language, 
two lab sciences and a math- 
computer component 
underscores the seriousness of 
the program." 

According to Ford, 
academic experts have been 
recommending a return to 
"academic excellence." Ford 
said he believes the committee 
is offering what the national 
experts suggest. 

If the proposal is passed, 
another committee will be 
formed to oversee the imple- 
mentation of the new system. 
When faculty members vote 
on the proposal, they will also 
vote on a set of 
recommendations made by the 
Gen. Ed. commitiee on the 
implementation process. The 

vote on the recommendations 
is non-binding and any single 
recommendation may be 
accepted or rejected. 

The implementation process 
will begin next summer as 
student records are converted 
to the new system. "If the 
proposal is passed, we'll make 
sure present students aren't 
penalized in the process. 
That's our main concern," 
said Ford. 

Next year's freshmen will be 
the first class fully affected by 
the new system. Ford called 
the conversion process "a 
compromise" between the new 
program and running the old 
and new programs simultan-

Curbing Electoral Chaos 

by Pete Johansson 

First of all, let me clear up any confusion. The movie, The 
Right Stuff, opens this month. It has nothing to do with this 
column. The column is not named after the movie (nor vice- 
versa), but is is named after the book by Tom Wolfe (not to 
be confused with Thomas Wolfe, another writer. No, this is 
the Tom Wolfe who also write The Electric Kool-Aid Acid 
Test and The Kandy-Kolored Tangerine-Flake Streamline 
Baby. All are fine books, and I recommend them 

The Right Stuff is about the early Navy test pilots and the 
beginning of the space program. Not surprisingly, it has a lot 
to do with John Glenn (For all you music majors, John Glenn 
was an astronaut and is now running for president. For 
further information, see president in the dictionary. It's a 
big fat book, with lots of words and a few nice drawings.). 
How this movie will affect the campaign is under heavy 
speculation now. My personal feeling is that, in the long run, 
John Glenn will do more for the movie than the movie will do 
for John Glenn, but that's not what I want to talk about right 
now. What I do want to talk about (look, Ma, a thesis state- 
ment!) is the trashing of our current electoral process. 

Let's face it: The two-party electoral system in this country 
is a shambles. Very little happens on the campaign trail that 
shows the electorate what kind of a president the candidate 
will make. Furthermore, the American Public has an annoy- 
ing tendency to go with a winner. If a good and sane candi- 
date gets only 4% of the vote in a primary, not many people 
will consider voting for him, no matter how good he sounds. 
It works the other way, too. If George Gallup announced that 
a Barry Gibb album had reaped 80°/o of the vote in a national 
survey, it probably would have taken the AFL/CIO vote 
away from Water Mondale. In the interests of avoiding a 
Reagan/Mondale race in '84 (George Orwell never dreamed 
it would be this bizarre), I propose the following changes to 
the electoral process: 

1) No person may, publicly or privately, announce or al- 
lude to his or her candidacy prior to October 31 of the election 
year. This would have several ramifications: 
—It would completely bypass the two-party system, thereby 
giving the electorate a healthy choice of candidates. 

—Organizations would have insufficient time to rally 
around a candidate, thereby forcing the voters to make up 
their own minds. 

—A Campaign blitzkreig would be launched, which would 
compact everyting we have to deal with for 16 months into a 
few days. 

2) No candidate may spend more than $40.00 on his 
campaign. Let's give everyone a chance. This also eliminates 
huge donations from large corporations, with more strings 
attached than a tennis racquet. 

3) In a nationally televised spectacle, each candidate will 
run one mile nude down Pennsylvania Avenue. Not only will 
each voter get a clear view of each candidate's physical 
condition, but this will prove each candidate is willing to 
humiliate himself for the American people. 

4) Each candidate must take a written exam, the results of 
which will be distributed at the polls on election day. 
Questions might include: 

—How many times do we have to be able to kill every 
person on earth before we can stop making nuclear bombs? 

— Is all this screwing around in Central America really 

—What sacrifices are you willing to make to end inflation? 
— Can we trust you? 

5) No public opinion polls or surveys may be taken. This 
includes straw votes, primaries, and other useless such things 
that only serve to give the smoothest talkers an unfair 

6) All voting places will open at 8:00 AM, EST, and close 
at 8:00 P.M., EST. This will insure that people on the West 
Coast won't hear Eastern election results on their car radio on 
the way to vote, like happened to my sister in '80. Tough 
beans if California has to open at 5:00 AM. 

7) All campaign promises must be fulfilled within one year 
of inauguration, under threat of impeachment. It's about 
time we did this. 

The plan isn't perfect, but it's better than what we have 
now. Let's give it a try. It sure beats having to deal with Alan 
Cranston from now until the primaries, and it would give 
people like Harrison Ford and Joan Rivers a fighting chance. 


Closet Maestros 




Editor's Note: The following 
is the third column in a five- 
part series on attitudes toward 
career planning. The 
contributing columnist is 
David Evans, Director of 
Career Planning and 
Placement, located in the 
Carnegie Building. 
Attitude #3: I can wait for 
campus interviews and enter a 
career that way. Is the attitude 
safe? No. 

Campus interviews are a 
sound alternative for some 
students only. The following 
conditions must be met: 

1. The student wishes for 
an employer in an industry 
which usually recruits on 
college campuses 
(manufacturing, retailing, 
banking, insurance, and 
utilities, among others). 
Others rarely if ever recruit 
this way, and among them are: 
building management, con- 
struction, trucking firms, 
petroleum pipeline operators, 
arts management, private 
social service agencies, court 
administration, outdoor 
education centers, and others. 

2. The student wishes to 
work for an employer who is 
large enough to recruit on 
college campuses. These will 
usually have offices or other 
facilities in locations 
throughout a state or in more 
than one state. They will 
usually have professional staff 
in depth, and will be able to 
absorb employees at 
graduation time even though 
they don't expect to need them 
until later. 

3. The student will graduate 
from a program which has 
prepared him or her for a 
career by name. It will 
probably have a job title (i.e., 
computer programmer, nurse, 
teacher, salesperson, etc.). It 
may have the name of the field 
from which the job title was 
chosen (i.e., sociology for 
social worker, business ad- 
ministration for business, etc), 
but this is not as prominent a 
connection as it used to be. 

While the campus interview 
is a sound approach for some 
students, it is rarely the best 
one for any of them. When the 
employer takes the initiative 
and visits a campus or places 
an ad, there is usually one 
result: too many candidates. 

Interviewers must reduce these 
to a manageable number. The 
first interview does this, while 
second and third interviews 
are for hiring purposes. The 
first interview looks for 
reasons to eliminate you. As 
an interviewer, it is easier to 
spot negative points in the 
short time available, and you 
don't have to defend having 
eliminated someone. Nobody 
sees them again. If you select 
someone for a second inter- 
view, your judment will in 
turn be judged by someone 
else in your organization. If 
the positions to be filled under 
your direct supervision, fine. 
But this is rarely the case. The 
"someone else" is usually the 

person who will supervise the 
candidate if he or she is hired. 
They know more about the job 
than you do. You have guide- 
lines, but these have to beneral 
and you are really guessing as 
best you can. Interviewing is a 
very difficult job, and few 
people do nothing but that. It 
is expensive for employers, 
and it is hardly convenient for 
them. The entire process is one 
born of urgency in an era 
when need continually sur- 
passed demand. That era has 
passed, and campus interviews 
survive only in fields where 
demand exceeds supply right 
now. In those career fields, 
campus interviews are still

A New Academic Gauntlet 

by David Frye 

"The Rising Tide of Mediocrity." "Back to Basics." 
Recent news reports have focused on the problems besetting 
American education — problems ranging from illiterate high 
school graduates to cuts in federal aid for college students to 
difficulties in reasserting the primacy of basic education. In 
general, America is re-examining its educational system by re- 
evaluating the underlying philosophies and re-appraising the 

Lebanon Valley College has not remained unaware of this 
trend. On the contrary, the General Education Committee 
has worked for many months (read years) at developing a new 
system for General Education. In fact, as you read these 
words, the faculty is judging the committee's proposed 
philosophy, goals and program for General Education. 

While we will not know the result of this vote for several 
days, I would like to make several observations about the 

First, the program is ambitious and comprehensive. To see 
this, one need do hardly more than scan the list of goals. 
"Reasoning," "The Past, the Present, and the Future," and 
"Values, Persons, and World Views" are just a sampling, yet 
they indicate the scope of this program. Achieving a complete 
understanding of these goals is more than a life's work. This 
program, however, admirably takes the needed first step. 

So much for abstract analysis of life-long philosophies. 
This new program attempts to stake out common ground, 
making professors' lives more pleasurable and students' lives 
more challenging and rewarding. 

For example, the rationale for the "Communication" goal 
states: "Since English is the most basic of all means of com- 
munication in our society, the liberally educated person 
should demonstrate high proficiency in English. Without it he 
will be handicapped in his efforts to express himself effec- 
tively and to advance his own education." 

The beauty of this rationale blossoms after the student 
passes through the General Education courses, all of which 
stress written composition. Professors will then be able to 
expect "high proficiency in English" of all students in all 
courses. Professors will judge students on content rather than 
on relative decipherability. Challenging, yet rewarding. 

Perhaps the most problematical goal is "Foreign 
Language." The faculty had earlier voted inconclusively in 
straw polls on this goal; nevertheless it has reappeared in re- 
considered form. I still see a problem with it, however. 

The rationale for "Foreign Language" states: "Since 
language is a principal distinguishing attribute of human life, 
the liberally educated person should develop an appreciation 
of the role of language in human society. To achieve this, it is 
necessary to gain a perspective essentially apart from the 
native language." 

The rub arises in implementing this goal. Based on high 
school records and results of a placement examination all 
entering students will take, the college may waive this require- 
ment for "Qualified" students. 

How can a test and a record show that a student has gained 
"an appreciation of the role of language in human society?" 
Establishing this interdisciplinary understanding, and others 
like it, is one major reason for the program. If a student can 
"test out" of this particular goal, why not offer a similar 
system for every other goal? Something is not quite equitable 
in this. Either a student should take a totally comprehensive 
examination or participate in all segments of the program. 

So while the new General Education Program is ambitious, 
comprehensive, and seeks common ground, it has problems. 
The achievements so far deserve recognition and the problems 
merit further discussion. The committee has asked the faculty 
to consider the program in toto. I think the faculty should not 
only approve it, but also suggest refinements. 


LVC Fun Fair Failure 

by Gloria Pochekailo 

"Yes, there is a Fun Fair;" 
"No, there is not a Fun Fair;" 
"It has been cancelled;" "No, ( 
it has not been cancelled;" 
"What is going on?" This is 
Probably what it sounded like 
°n Friday after those groups 
Participating in the Fun Fair 
heard that only 5 groups were 
to participate. As it so 
happened, the Fun Fair was 

Why did it have to be can- 
celled? Well, it is true that to 
have a Fun Fair with only five 
groups participating would 
n ot be too much fun. The 
•nam objective of this fair was 
to raise money for the United 
Way (approximately $300 was 
^e estimated contribution). 
This lack of participation and 
'nterest does not say much for 
th e students of LVC. Even if 
lending the fair would take 

time away from that hard 
studying for mid-terms, the 
fair would have been a good 
cause and a pleasant outdoor 

The questionnaires for this 
project were sent out last sem- 
ester to 48 clubs on campus. 
Fourteen of those clubs 
responded with a yes in May. 
Just to refresh the memory of 
each club, a letter was sent out 
a week and a half before the 
Fun Fair. At this point nine of 
those original 14 clubs 
dropped out. 

Perhaps there should be 
some sort of coordination 
between the Student Activities 
Office and each club on 
campus to avoid such 
problems. At this time of 
year it is rough to put aside 
time for activities like the Fun 
Fair; perhaps at some other 
time of the year more clubs 

would participate. Perhaps 
more advanced notice should 
be sent so that these clubs may 
prepare a little better. 

In place of the Fun Fair, a 
dance-marathon will be held in 
November to raise the funds 
that the Fun Fair should have 

raised. This does sound more 
attractive than a fair, so maybe 
more clubs will send a 
sponsor. An organizational 
meeting will be held on Oct. 13 
at 9 p.m. in Faust Lounge — 
attend, give your ideas, and be

Phil Gramm Addresses Republicans 

by Mark Scott 

On October 7, Congressman 
Phil Gramm (R-Texas), 
appeared on campus 
addressing the Lebanon 
County Republican 
Committee at their annual 
dinner. Gramm is best known 
as co-author of the Gramm- 
Latta Budget, one of the prin- 

cipal legislative planks of 
"Reaganomics." Enacted in 
September, 1981, this budget 
set the precedent of slashing 
federal spending and reducing 
taxes across-the-board by 25%. 

Gramm is also well known 
as the Democratic Congress- 
man who resigned his seat in 

Women's Auxiliary 
Upgrades Decor 

The LVC Women's Auxilia- 
ry is a group that is rarely visi- 
ble to the student body except 
at Homecoming when students 
browse the plant sale hunting 
for greenery to brighten their 
dorm rooms. 

What many students do not 
realize is that the Auxiliary, 
with just over 500 members, is 
quietly and deliberately 
making student life at LVC a 
little more comfortable. 

According to Mrs. June 
Herr, professor emeritus of 
Education and president of the 
Auxiliary, the Auxiliary 
recently fulfilled a $1000 
pledge toward renovations of 
the Snack Shop. Cheryl Reihl, 
Director of Student Activities, 
who helped coordinate the 
renovations, says the 
Auxiliary donation was used 
toward the purchase of new 
carpeting for the Snack Shop. 
This year, the Auxiliary has 
also provided new window 
shades for Centre Hall and 
large, commercial vacuum 
cleaners for the dormitories. 

Last year, says Mrs. Herr, 
the Auxiliary spent $1279 to 
purchase carpeting for the first 
floor of Mary Green Hall and 
continued the refurbishing of 
Wagner House with the 
purchase of a refrigerator, 
new vinyl flooring for the 
kitchen, lamp shade, light 
fixtures, kitchen curtains, 
bedspreads and towel racks at 
a total cost of $485. The 
Auxiliary also paid $1000 as 
the final payment on a $10,000 
pledge to the Garber Science 
Center. A bronze plaque 
recognizes the Auxiliary as the 
donor of room 122, the 
reference collections room.

These projects represented a 
record year for the Auxiliary 
in terms of service to the 
campus environment. The 
Auxiliary also enjoyed a 
record year in terms of 
membership. For the first 
time, the membership roster 
broke the 500 mark. 

Mrs. Herr says the increase 
is the result of a concentrated 
membership drive which 
incorporated a series of 
targeted mailings. She says 
membership materials were 
sent to the entire college 
family including members of 
the Board of Trustees and 
parents of present students, 
plus others interested in the 
college. Another mailing went 
to all alumnae in Lebanon, 
Lancaster and Dauphin 
counties. Plans are to extend 
the mailings each year into 
additional Pennsylvania 
counties and eventually into 
adjoining states. 

Because of the boost in 
memberships and because 
many members contribute 
more than the $2 annual dues, 
the group's total income last 
year was $2284. 

Other sources for revenue 
include the annual Spring 
Fashion Show and the 
Homecoming Plant and Bake 

The Auxiliary's primary 
concern, according to Mrs. 
Herr, is "to provide for the 
comfort and morale of the 
students." Plans for this year 
include a fund for plants for 
the campus flower beds as well 
as continuing to help with the 
renovations of the Snack Shop 

and other campus improve- 
ments which will improve the 
campus environment.

was re-elected as a Republi- 

Gramm has received much 
bad publicity for this action, 
being branded as both an "op- 
portunist," and a "turncoat." 
However, Gramm contends 
that his quarrel with House 
Speaker Tip O'Neill over his 
firm beliefs in cutting govern- 
ment spending, which resulted 
in his being stripped of his seat 
on the House Budget Com- 
mittee, combined with his 
basic Conservatism, was the 
reason for his change in party. 

In his address, Gramm out- 
lined his commitment to the 
pursuit of sound fiscal policy 
as set by the Republican party 
and the Reagan administra- 
tion. He pointed out that the 
President's economic program 
is bringing us economic re- 
covery as promised. He was 
quick to comment also that the 
recent recession and economic 
slump which has hurt so many 
and postponed the recovery, 

started four full months 
before the Reagan economic 
policies took effect. 

Gramm emphasized his 
belief in individual initiative as 
the foundation of our 
economic system. He also 
affirmed his opposition to 
policies of overtaxing and un- 
sound monetary policy which 
many blame as the reason for 
economic downturn. Under 
these policies, people are much 
less inclined to make the 
investments resulting in 
economic growth as they know 
the government will tax their 
profits to the hilt. 

Gramm maintained that 
recent Democratic efforts to 
help the economy have been 
negligible. Their only budget- 
ary proposals have included 
huge tax increases and gross 
expanding of federal spending 
in all areas of social program. 
These proposals have histor- 
ically proven effective only in 
increasing the size of the fed- 
eral government. 

In addition, Gramm pointed 

out that these proposals call 
for unrealistically low levels of 
defense spending, especially in 
light of the current world 
situation with a potentially 
trigger-happy adversary 
threatening international 

Gramm claimed that these 
figures are even lower than 
those proposed by President 
Jimmy Carter after the Soviet 
invasion of Afghanistan in 
1979. Turning to the budget, 
Gramm maintained that a 
freeze on all federal spending 
for four years could balance 
the budget. 

Gramm effectively declared 
support and praise for the 
Reagan administration and the 
current Republican platform. 
Finally, he left the audience 
with his hope for the future; 
keeping a Republican White 
House and Senate, and regain- 
ing the seats lost in the House 
in 1982, with the object of 
keeping the ideals of the 
Republican party in effect for 
the future of the nation.

College Welcomes 
Italian Students 

by Julie Sea/ander 

In a first-time-ever program 
between the Italian and United 
States governments, six Italian 
exchange students are 
spending a year at LVC. The 
four men and two women are 
part of a group of 31 scholar- 
ship winners scattered in 
colleges and universities across 
the United States. 

The students' views of the 
college provide an interesting 
perspective on campus life. 
There are many differences 
between school at Lebanon 
Valley and the universities of 
Italy. "In Italy," says Maria 
Mattarello, a political science 
major, "I go to school to 
study law and have never 
studied anything else. Here/a 
student who studies law can 
take many different subjects." 

Giovanni Giovannelli, a 
business major, comments, 
"The style of courses here is 
similar to what we study in 
high school, although more 
difficult." Also, all students in 
Italy are commuters. "A 
university over there is a place 
to study, not a place to 
become involved in," says 
Elvira Castellano, a political 
science major. 

LVC's small size has both 
its advantages and its 
drawbacks, according to the 
students. Gian Mario 
Grescentino, a business major, 
compares the small classes to 
the huge lecture halls in Italy 
and says, "The small classes 
allow for more student-teacher 
contact. Also the teachers are 
good and keep the classes 

Maria explains, "It is easy 
to meet people here on a small 
campus. Everyone has been 
very open and friendly. All the 
girls on our hall are very polite 
and kind." However, Elvira, 
who makes her home in the 
international city of Rome, 
says, "I feel that this place is 
very isolated." Other students 
have expressed that wish to be 
closer to a more metropolitan 

Giovanni, a business major 
and member of the soccer 
team says, "I most enjoy my 
soccer trips away from the 
school. We get a chance to see 
so many different, beautiful 
places." He feels that "It 
would be a good idea for the 
school to plan trips for the 
students off-campus for the 
weekends. As it is, there is not 
much to do." 

Unlike Maria, Giovanni 
feels that the people on 
campus, "are not as friendly 
or open as I had expected." 
He thinks that this could have 
something to do with the fact 
that the college center is not 
utilized fully. "It is not a place 
to meet people and share 
ideas, as we have in Italy." 

Overall, the exchange 
students express many of the 
likes and dislikes of the 
average LVC student, 
including a plea for 
"better cafeteria food." None 
of the credits they receive will 
be transferred to their schools 
back in Italy, when they return 
next year. Their reason for 
coming to LVC for a year is 
for the experience of attending 
school in a foreign country.

Posts Two Wins 

by Denise Mastovich 

The LVC football team 
came to life as they squeaked a 
23-22 victory over Dickinson 
on Oct. 1 and an 18-17 victory 
over Fairleigh Dickinson Uni- 
versity on Oct. 7. 

After three outstanding 
interceptions in the first half 
of the Dickinson game, Ralph 
Ackerman was named out- 
standing player of the week. 
Coach Lou Sorrentino was 
pleased with the teams' 
improvement as they boosted 
their record to 2 wins and 3 

The Dutchmen traveled to 
Madison, NJ last Saturday to 
defeat Fairleigh Dickinson. 
Despite being behind in the 
first half 17-3, LVC out-scor- 
ed FDU by 15-0 in the second 

half to take the win. Coach 
Sorrentino said, "We 
definitely controlled the ball in 
the second half even though 
we were outweighed by about 
30 pounds per man." 

John Taormino and Cliff 
Harro played good running 
games at FDU. "Quarterback 
Jim Algeo and the whole of- 
fensive line did a fine job," 
said Coach Sorrentino. He 
added, "Defense also played a 
solid game all day." 

Sorrentino commended the 
eight seniors for doing a good 
job and for being the strength 
of the team. 

The next game will be away 
at Albright on Saturday, Oct. 
15, followed by another away 
game at Ursinus on Saturday,

CHASES BALL — Brian Gockley races a defender for the ball during a recent game on 
Arnold Field. The next home game is against Juniata, Oct. 19. 

Valley Field Hockey 
Proves Awesome in Win 

The women's field hockey 
team unleashed an awesome 
offensive battle as it fought to 
a 6-0 victory over Western 
Maryland College on Oct. 6. 

Freshmen Jean Coleman 
and Laurie Kamann tallied 
two goals apiece, while senior 
Deb Detwiler and sophomore 
Dixie Boehler each netted one. 
The defensive unit held the 
opponent scoreless and kept 
play centered on the LVC 
offensive end of the field. 

This game provided two 
"firsts" for the squad, as it 

was the first win for the team 
and it was also the first time 
the offense scored more than 
one goal. 

The Homecoming game on 
Sept. 24 was a disappointing 
loss for the team, with a score 
of 2-1. Detwiler scored on a 
penalty stroke early in the 
game and the Dutchmen took 
the lead. However, a strong 
and aggressive Dickinson 
offense rebounded to score 
twice and win. 

On Sept. 27, Moravian 
College handed LVC a 1-0 

loss. Then, the squad travelled 
to Elizabethtown to lose a 
hard-fought 1-0 game. Both 
teams' defensive units 
remained intact until the Blue 
Jays nailed a corner shot late 
in the second half to win. 

Against Muhlenburg 
College on Oct. 4, the LVC 
team played a slow game, 
coming out on the short end 
again, 1-0. 

The team travels to Widener 
University on Oct. 15 and 
meets Albright College at 
home on Oct. 19.

LV Soccer Team 
Suffers From 
Losses, Injuries 

by Tracy Wenger 

Adding six more losses to its 
record, the LVC soccer team 
is, according to head coach 
Bruce Correll, "not playing as 
well as it can." The injuries of 
mid-fielder Scott Martin and 
fullback Terry Brown have 
hurt the squad because of a 
lack of depth. Goalie Jed 
Duryea is also on the injured 
list. He is replaced by Rob 
Muir, who has not been in the 
goal for three years. 

Against Ursinus on Oct. 6, 
the team lost 5-0. After 
Ursinus scored two "fluke 
goals" in the first half, Muir 
and the team came back to play 
an excellent second half. 

On Oct. 1, LVC lost 3-0 to 
Gettysburg College. Since the 
team had scored only once 
(netted by Joe Morrison) and 
had had 26 goals . scored 
against them, Correll moved 
Morrison and sophomore Erik 
Enters to the v offensive line. 
"We were not pressuring 
enough on offense," says 
Correll. He adds that shifting 
these two players has helped 
the offensive drive. 

Against Allentown on Sept. 
28, the Dutchmen fell with a 
score of 4-0. In earlier games, 
both Western Maryland and 
Dickinson handed the LVC 

team losses with respective 
scores of 5-0 and 6-0. 

In addition to the 
"indefinite injuries" to key 
players, Correll says, "The 
inability to make the transition 
between offense and defense 
is killing us. We have to get the 
ball back as soon as we lose 
it." Anticipation is the name 
of the game according to 
team losses with respective 
LVC team stands, watches, 
and then reacts. 

Correll says that he, as well 
as the team, feels "frustration 
at the lack of scoring and the 
inexperienced defensive unit." 
However, with the return of 
the injured players, Correll 
looks toward several 
"probable" victories before 
the end of the season. 

The squad faces Widener 
University on Oct. 15, Juniata 
at home on Oct. 19, and 
Muhlenburg on Oct. 22. 


The men's and women's 
cross country teams had a 
challenging and successful 
week of competition. On Oct. 
1 the men raced at Muhlenburg 
and brought in a 19 to 38 win. 

Top finishers were Lyle 
Trumble and John Hibshman 
who finished first and second 
overall in the race, and Chris 
Jasman, who finished fourth. 

That same Saturday, the 
women captured two wins at 
Moravian. They beat 
Moravian 22-38, and Drew 15- 

50, but lost to Scranton and 

On Wednesday, Oct. 5, the 
men defeated Messiah 27-28. 
Again, LVC's top finishers 
were Lyle Trumble, John 
Hibshman and Chris Jasman. 

Last Saturday, the men and 
women competed in an away 
meet at Johns Hopkins. The 
men finished 41-17 against 
Ursinus, but beat Johns 
Hopkins 24-31. Top finishers 
were Lyle Trumble, with a 
time of 28:13, John Hibshman 

at 28:58 and Dave Eckman at 
29:50. The women were beaten 
by Hopkins with a score of 15- 
50. Coach Unger commented, 
"It was one of the most diffi- 
cult courses they have ever 

The coach looks optimisti- 
cally to an "even more com- 
petitive rest of the season" for 
the women, and for the men 
he sees "the fourth through 
eighth runners continuing to 
get closer to the first."

Computer Lab 
Adds Variety 

by Robert Donley 

At the beginning of this 
semester, the Department of 
Mathematical Sciences un- 
veiled the new computer labor- 
atory and computer lecture 
room, located on the first 
floor of the Administration 

LVC students will use the 
computer laboratory, which 
contains a highly diversified 
ensemble of computer 
hardware and software, to ful- 
fill requirements of computer 
science courses. 

According to Dr. Joerg 
Mayer, professor in the de- 
partment of mathematical 
sciences, the lab also includes 
a DEC PDP 11/40 computer 
and 10 terminals which are 
connected to the college's 
main PDP 1 1/70 computer. 

The PDP 11/40 was 
formerly the main campus 
computer until it was replaced 
by the PDP 11/70 three years 

Five languages (Pascal, 
and assembler) are presently 
available on the lab terminals 
and micro-computers. Ada, 
which is a special language used 
by government defense con- 
tractors, will be added at a later 

In addition to fulfillment of 
course requirements, 
utilization of the computer lab 
will eventually include use of 
micro-computers in scientific 
and business computing and 
word processing, use of the 
PDP 11/40 by computer 
majors for experimentation in 
computing, and general use of 
th lab as a teaching facility in 
workshops, seminars, camps, 
and other projects. 

The lab wil also be open to 
outside users such as high 

schools, local businesses, and 

Mayer said the primary 
purpose of the lab is " 
fully support the educational 
program of the department of 
mathematical sciences, to 
assist the college community in 
their efforts to acquire 
expertise and experience in the 
responsible use of computers, 
and to lend support to the 
larger community in 
computer-related matters." 

Due to occasional 
breakdowns in the PDP 11/40, 
incomplete installation of 
computer machinery and 
software, and lack of 
personnel knowledgeable in 
use of the equipment, Mayer 
states the lab is "not yet func- 
tioning at its eventual 

He is confident that, once 
the lab is fully operational, it 
will render greater educational 
opportunities at LVC. 

Mayer said every 
department of the college 
could benefit from the use of 
computer programs such as 

An important short-term 
expectation of the lab is that 
enough students will become 
adequately trained in the use 
of the lab to provide instruc- 
tion and assistance for others. 
Long term Dlans include

Prez Search Continues 

by Amy Hostetler 

Lebanon Valley College is 
still "In Search of..." a new 
president, but, according to F. 
Allen Rutherford Jr., 
president of the Board of 
Trustees and chairman of the 
presidential search committee, 
the committee hopes to have a 
candidate for election by mid- 

In a progress report to the 
board during its Oct. 22 
meeting, Rutherford 
announced that the committee 
has completed three days of 
off-campus interviews with 
candidates and will soon 
conduct on-campus 
interviews. Each individual 

candidate will visit the campus 
for one or two days to talk to 
students, faculty and adminis- 
trators and become acquainted 
with LVC. 

According to Rutherford, 
over 130 nominations were 
received as of last week. No 
further nominations will be 
accepted unless the committee 
feels the candidate is 
exceptionally well-qualified 
for the position. Rutherford 
told the trustees that all 
resumes have been read, 
discussed, evaluated and 
judged by comparison by each 
individual committee member. 
The committee consists of: 
Rutherford; Daniel Shearer, 

representing the Central 
Pennsylvania Conference of 
the United Methodist Church 
(UMC); Wendy Carter, 
representing LVC students; 
Dr. Owen Moe, representing 
the faculty; Dr. Agnes 
O'Donnell, also representing 
the faculty; Thomas Reinhart, 
representing LVC alumni; 
Robert Unger, representing 
the administration; Dr. Paul 
Wolf, representing the faculty; 
and Harry Yost, representing 
the Eastern Pennsylvania 
Conference of the UMC. 

"As we wind down, it'll 
become tougher," Rutherford 
said. "We have some good

by Pete Johansson 

Sometimes people get drunk. And when they do, 
they do many stupid things they would never do 
sober. The next morning, through a heavy fog of 
No. 9 industrial strength hangover, they run around 
like headless chickens, trying to repair the damage 
they've done. 

This must have been the case with the Board of 
Trustees meeting last Saturday. Apparently, the 
Board of Trustees got very drunk one night and 
decided they would actually treat the LVC students 
as adults, and let us have 24-hour intervisitation on 
weekends, if we wanted it. Well, we did, and when 
the Board found out what they'd done, they 
immediately (two months is as close to "immedi- 
ately" as any committee gets) met to try to figure 
out how they could have been so stupid and 

The Board tells us that they are worried that 
students will have parties all night and sleep all day. 
Perhaps they should get drunk again, because 
they're not thinking logically. I'd like to invite any 

member of the Board of Trustees to walk into a 
vacant dorm room at 4:30 on a Sunday morning 
with a stereo, and play it at full blast. Let that 
person see what it gets him. Will fifteen or twenty 
students gleefully congregate, eyes a-twinkle at the 
prospect of a late-night party? I think fifteen or 
twenty people will congregate, but they won't be 
gleeful. I doubt very much that either the Trustee or 
the stereo will leave the dorm, be it Keister or Silver, 
in a recognizable state. 

And what if people did party all night and sleep 
all day? They wouldn't do homework. They 
wouldn't attend classes. They wouldn't pass 
courses. They would fail out. LVC would be free of 
its deadwood, and serious students would be able to 
study in peace. Wouldn't that be a grand vision to 
the Board member? An entire campus of quiet, 
harmless students, diligently pursuing the lofty 
goals of a liberal arts education. Ah, bliss. But 
apparently, the Board feels that the same students 
are instantly transformed into hedonistic Franken- 


Hardly. It seems then, that the Board has one 
remaining defense: LVC students will madly 
fornicate in the dorms. Whether this is any of the 
Board's business or not is a moot point, but one 
can't escape the fact that the students that do madly 
fornicate in their rooms (perish the thought!) will 
do so whether or not intervisitation exists, thus only 
the innocent, virginal student (there are, I think, 
five such people on campus) will be penalized by the 
lack of intervisitation. This is where you come in. If 
enough students ignore the rule, it quickly becomes 
useless, but the Board must know this. If you will 
madly fornicate in your room regardless of the rules, 
or know of at least two people who will, fill out the 
coupon elsewhere on this page, sign it if you wish, 
and send it to me via intracampus mail. I will 
publish the results in the next issue of The Quad. 

We can do it together. We can fight the Board of 
Trustees and keep our intervisitation. As soon as 
you walk out of dinner! Let's speak up, and keep 
LVC the way we've wanted it to be for so long. 

REVIEW 007— A Real Man 

by Pete Johansson 

So what if he's 53 years old? 
So what if he wears a toupee? I 
for one, am glad he's back. 
Never Say Never Again stars 
Sean Connery, the real James 
Bond, 007, and he's as good as 

OK. So the plot is predic- 
table. So the gadgets are there. 
The important thing is we get a 
break from Roger Moore, 
buffooning his way through 
Her Majesty's Secret Service. 

Sean Connery is a Man. He get 
dirty. He fights with his 
hands, and he gets hurt. He 
doesn't get cutesy when the 
forces of doom threaten our 

But 007 is old, and in this 
movie he must prove his' 
worth. Sean Connery has been 
criticized for trying to play a 
younger man's game, but I 
think this adds a needed 
human dimension to the film. 
Bond is getting old, nearing re- 

tirement, and the plot brings 
out a subtle weariness that still 
manages not to detract from 
the action. 007 is finally 
human, and I'd like to see 
Roger Moore try his hand at 

The movie has one other 
surprise, in the person of 
Klaus Maria Brandauer. 
Brandauer, an established 
Austrian actor (Mephisto is 
one of his films that's made it 
across the Atlantic), plays the 

part of Maximillian Largo, the 
villain. While he is as evil as he 
is insane, as all Bond villains 
are, it is worth the price of 
admission to see his 
performance alone. Brandauer 
transcends the stereotype with 
some damn fine acting. 
Connery held out for creative 
control in this film, including 
casting, and I'm glad he did, 
because Brandauer is a 
refreshing change from the 
usual Bond bad guy. Even if 

you prefer Roger Moore (you 
Philistine) you'll remember 
Brandauer's performance. 

So go see Never Say Never 
Again. It has all the girls and 
action of the other Bonds, and 
adds a welcome human dimen- 
sion to the Bond Saga. So 
move over, Roger Moore, 007 
is back. 

P.S. Oh, yes, the girls. Bar- 
bara Carrera is more than 

PREVIEW Godspell 

by Maria Montesano 

Wig and Buckle will present 
Godspell on Oct. 28-30 and 
Nov. 4-6 in the College Center 
Little Theater at 8 p.m. 

Godspell, a musical based 
on the Gospel according to St. 
Matthew, was originally 
conceived by John-Michael 
Tebelak for a master's thesis 
through improvisation. 

The play, directed by senior 

Wallace Umberger, begins 
with "The Tower of Babble," 
a symbolic representation of 
philosophers' battles over 
theories of man's relationship 
to God. Godspell then takes 
the audience from Jesus' 
baptism through his parables, 
presented in every theatrical 
device imaginable, to the Last 
Supper and the Crucifixion.

p .3 THE QUAD Thursday, Oct. 27, 1983 


by David Frye 

Recently, and increasingly, my family, friends, 
and relatives have asked me this question: "What 
are you planning to do after you graduate?" Their 
innocent queries are understandable, and hardly 
avoidable, as my senior year of college (my seven- 
teenth year as a professional student) has more than 
one-quarter passed into history. 

This question, although asked by persons who 
care about me, always seem to inflict upon me a 
severe case of the "Hemhaws." You've heard 
someone suffering from this horrible malady try to 
speak clearly, coherently, concisely, and cogently: 
"Well. ..urn. ..I uh...I'm not sure. ..but uh...I'm 
thinking about it. (Pause) Maybe grad 
school... getting a job could be a good idea... I'm 
really not quite sure...." Pathetic, isn't it? 

Or is it? Probably most of us have wallowed 
miserably in hesitancy at one time or another, 
thinking along with John Lennon, "Here in the 
valley of indecision/I don't know what to do." So, 
rather than pathetic, indecision may be natural; in 
addition, it is surely universal. 

The indecision I feel over my future is partially 
due to the freedom I have. My grandparents knew 
they had to work on the farm, so schooling beyond 


the eighth grade was out of the question. 1 have no 
such "luck." 

Life after graduation confronts me with heavy 
responsibilities. I will need to provide for my own 
welfare in every sense of the word. A staggering 
number of decisions face me. Career... place of resi- 
dence... friends... finances. All are important and 
complex. So, how to avoid a sense of futility and of 
being overwhelmed becomes a vital question. 

Sitting off in a corner, stewing over the daunting 
enormity of the decisions, and shaking my head in 
frustration is not a healthy answer. Several other 
more constructive ideas come to mind. 

The first idea seems obvious, but a mental death- 
wish often obscures it from me. Don't try to decide 
upon a career as if this one career will last for fifty 
years and end in a gold watch. Changing careers 
once, if not several times, is the norm rather than 
the exception nowadays. Some occupations 
booming today didn't exist ten years ago; a decade 
from now, new options will flourish. Abiding by 
this guideline scales the decision down to mortal 

Second, take an inventory of personal likes, 
skills, proficiencies, and limitations. Doing this can 

of Indecision 

provide a better grasp on the raw material you have 
to work with. You can also eliminate options you 
know will not suit. For example, if you thrive on the 
kaleidoscopic milieu of urban life, don't become a 
forest ranger. 

Third, talk to people about their careers. Ask 
them why they chose a particular career, what they 
enjoy about their work, what aspects are drudgery- 
laden, and what opportunities exist in their 
particular fields. Gathering as much information as 
possible can only make you a better-informed 

Finally, take a deep breath, weigh the evidence, 
exhale, and say (after inhaling again), "I'll try 
this." Then try it, and if you remain miserable, try 
something else. 

One final note — even if we, as graduates of 
Lebanon Valley College, the liberal arts bastion par 
excellence in the Lebanon Valley, end up in careers 
outside of our majors, our liberals arts training will 
remain vital. The ability to work with a system of 
thought, to reason effectively, to make moral 
decisions, and to communicate clearly is the 
greatest gift we carry away from college. This gift 
will not fail us.

Last year, I organized the odd observations on 
college life here at LVC, observations which had 
languished as one-of-a-kind socks in my editorial 
drawer. Thus CHEERS AND JEERS was 
conceived as a catch-all collection of collegiate 
claps-on-the-back and castigations. Back for an 
encore performance, in the grandiloquent tradition 
of seamy sequels, is CHEERS AND JEERS II. 

CHEERS to the powers that be responsible for the 
new furniture in Funkhouser's lounges. These glori- 
fied and padded packing crates are not only 
exquisitely comfortable and infinitely rearrangable, 


by Amy Hostetler 

Once upon a time, in a land not so very far away, 
there lived the simple king of Ellevesy. This simple 
king did not trust his subjects, although they 
obeyed his every command. "You shall not go out 
after dark and venture forth into the adult world," 
the simple king said, "for then you will seek the 
dragon named Responsibility, study, and make 
merry without me." The subjects grumbled; but 
what could they do? 

So it went, until finally the subjects complained 
to the mayors of Merry Blue, Rockhouser, Lordroy, 
Copper, Posterior and Chickond. (Centreland, 
Sheridantown and North University didn't have 
mayors.) They raised their voices in protest and 
forced the mayors to go to the Dukes of Deen. 
After the mayors explained the subjects' wishes, the 
dukes said, "You are right. This law is not good. 
We will bring this matter before our simple king 
and the Bored of Non-trustings." 

And so, the Dukes of Deen told the simple king, 
"Simple King," they said, "the subjects want to go 
°ut after dark and venture forth into the adult 
w orld and hunt the elusive dragon (who lived in the 
Quad) named Responsibility. Others, whom we 
have sent to psychiatrists, want to study. A few 
e ven want to make merry. Why won't you allow 
th em to, sire?" The simple king had no answer, for 
by then he had grown old and tired. 

The simple king gathered his Bored of Non- 

but also responsible for people actually lounging in 
front of the fireplaces. In addition, the nightly fires 
have relieved Conrail of many unsightly, discarded 
ties. So what if Funkhouser smells like a South 
Philly refinery. 

JEERS to the system of leaving packages on the 
bench near the college center desk. Even though 
everyone on campus is totally trustworthy, nothing 
prohibits off-campus riffraff from baffling college 
security forces and pinching a package or two. Why 
not post a list of parcel recipients and proclaim a 
place of package procurement? 

trustings in the East Dining Hall and said, "You will 
decide the matter, for you are the wisest in the land 
of Ellevesy. Shall we allow my subjects to venture 
forth into the adult world and search for the dragon 
Responsiblity?" The Non-trustings, being a good 
Bored, formed a committee to study the situation. 
Finally, the Non-trusting committee made a decree: 
"We will allow the subjects of Ellevesy to venture 
forth and search for the dragon named 
Responsibility, but each town must vote." And so 
the Bored of Non-trustings allowed the subjects of 
Ellevesy to venture forth into the adult world and 
search for the dragon, but only on weekends. 

Unfortunately, there isn't any "happy ever- 
after" for this fairy tale, as on Oct. 22, LVC's own 
"Bored of Non-trustings" woke up and realized 
exactly what they were permitting when they 
passed — without discussion! — the new guest policy 
last May. 

As I listened to the outcries when the chairman of 
the committee on extracurricular program and stu- 
dent affairs, George S. Glen, reported on the posi- 
tive progress of the policy, I almost laughed. 
However, as more and more trustees spoke out 
against the very policy they passed, I realized with 
horrow how out-of-touch with students the trustees 
really are. 

Here are some of the statements I heard from the 
wise trustees: (1) Students stay up all night to party 

JEERS to the idea of banishing last week's 
coffeehour to that subterranean behemoth, 
Activities 4, formerly the game room. Vocalist Julia 
Wilson serenaded valiantly, but concrete block 
warehouses diminish any singer's performance. 
What was wrong with the warm earth tones of the 
wood-walled East Dining Hall? 

CHEERS to this semester's LVC 
Presents... series. Matters of universal urgency, 
from megatons to the Moral Majority and from 
brainwashing to booze, have enlivened eclectic con- 
versations and extemporaneous cafeteria harangues 
exchanged over lemon meringue pies. 

...A Grim Tale 

and sleep all day (true for some), (2) Students want 
the new guest policy for only one thing — sex, 
especially the female students, and (3) Students, 
even R.A.'s, can't handle the dragon named 

Those assumptions and statements are ground- 
less; the trustees have no concrete evidence that they 
are true and accurate. How could they know? Have 
trustees, excluding faculty members, Mr. F. Allen 
Rutherford, Jr., and the committee that proposed 
the policy, ever talked to students about their 
campus life? 

Although the Board has the right to reverse its 
decision (anything is possible), it does not have the 
right to make assumptions about the students (you 
know what they say about assumptions) or to 
impose its out-of-touch morality on the students. 
The college and trustees should guide us in our 
moral decisions, let us search for Responsibility, 
not decide what is right for us. 

The Board's committee on extracurricular 
program and student affairs will hold an open 
forum meeting with students on Dec. 1 . Mark down 
that date and GO! We may lose this privilege. Don't 
blow it! 

P.S. I personally invite all trustee members to visit 
1st Floor Vickroy in order to see what a dorm is 
really like and talk to some 20th century students. 
Or, how about lunch at the caf?

Three Lebanon Valley 
College students, Wendy 
Carter, Deborah Dressier and 
Jonathan Frye, were recently 
named Scholars in Education 
by the Pennsylvania High 
Education Assistance Agency 

A total of 94 Pennsylvania 
college students, interested in 
teaching science or 
mathematics, were given half- 
tuition awards ranging in 
value from $1,500 to over 
$4,200. Lebanon Valley 
College was one of 1 1 colleges 
and universities to receive 
more than two awards. 

To qualify for the awards, 
the recipients must agree to 
teach for a year in Pennsyl- 
vania secondary schools for 
each year they receive an 
award or repay it as a loan if 
they do not meet that 

Scholastic criteria for 
nomination included a 
combined SAT score of at 
least 1000 with a minimum of 
550 in mathematics. Nominees 
also must have been in the top 
20 percent of their high school 
class and must have achieved a 
B average in their high school 
and college courses in science 
and mathematics. 

The LVC students winning 
the awards were: 
Jonathan Frye, son of Mr. and 
Mrs. Tilman Frye, 310 S. 21st 
St., Lebnaon. He is a junior 
biology major and a member 
of Beta Beta Beta, the Biology 
Club and the Case Investiga- 
tion Board. 

Wendy Carter, daughter of 
Mr. and Mrs. Neal Carter, 
4740 Darlington Road, York. 
She is a junior mathematical 
sciences major and serves as 
president of the LVC Student 
Council and as a member of 
the Board of Trustees. 
Deborah Dressier, daughter of 
Mr. and Mrs. Bernhard 
Dressier, 287 Kent Road, 
Warminster. She is a 
sophomore biology major and 
is a member of the Biology 
Club, PROJECT, the Sudent 
Judicial Board and the LVC 
Chapel Choir.

Gen Ed Passed 

The faculty of Lebanon Valley College voted 49 to 25 two 
weeks ago in favor of a new general education program to go 
into effect in the fall of 1984. 

The total number of hours required will be 44, similar to 
the current program, which requires anywhere from 39 to 48 
hours. The new program reduces the number of courses 
which form part of the general education curriculum, thus 
increasing the courses students will take in common. 

The major changes from the current program include a 
foreign language requirement for all students. The current 
possibility of taking two other general education courses in 
place of a foreign language is eliminated. 

The program also includes a new mathematics/computer 
science course for those students who do not take these 
subjects as part of their major programs, two semesters of lab 
sciences and three courses required of all students: a context 
course in history, a context course in culture and an inter- 
disciplinary aesthetics course. 

The Committee on General Education has been working 
for the past two years and has held frequent discussions with 
faculty and students. Committee chairman Arthur Ford said 
the new program is an attempt to strengthen the college's 
committment to the liberal arts. 

He added, "We believe this program is academically 
legitimate and intellectually rigorous. We're saying to our- 
selves and to the public, 'Lebanon Valley is serious about 
education.' " 

I. Communication 

All students must take a two-semester sequence of courses in 
English composition. Additionally, all General Education 
courses should include written composition. 6 hours. 

II. Mathematics and Computers 

All students must take a one-semester integrated course in 
mathematics and computers. This requirement can also be 
met by a one-semester introductory computer science course 
and a mathematics course involving mathematical reasoning 
and applications. 3 hours. 

III. Foreign Language 

All in-coming students must take a placement examination in 
a foreign language. Based on that examination and on the 
high school record, each student will be placed in one of the 
following categories: (1 .) Two semesters of a foreign language 
at the elementary level. (2) Two semesters of a foreign 
language at the intermediate level. (3.) Exemption from the 
foreign language requirement. 6 hours. 

IV. The Historical and Cultural Contexts 

All students must take the following: (1 .) A one-semester con- 
text course in history. (2.) A one-semester context course in 
culture. (3.) One disciplinary course which supplements one 
or both context courses. This course must be chosen from the 
disciplines of political science, economics, sociology, psycho- 
logy and geography. 9 hours. 

V. Science and Technology 

All students must take two one-semester courses in the 
sciences. 6 hours. 

VI. The Aesthetic Experience 

All students must take the following: (1.) A one-semester 
interdisciplinary course dealing with aesthetics in art, litera- 
ture, and music. (2.) A one-semester disciplinary course 
designed to supplement in more detail the interdisciplinary 
aesthetics course. 6 hours. 

VII. Values, Persons, and World Views 

All students must take two one-semester courses in philoso- 
phy or religion. 6 hours. 

VIII. Physical Activity 

All students must take two one-semester physical activity 
courses. 2 hours.

Students Reflect 
on Fall Pledging 

by Gloria Pochekailo 

As the fall season comes to a 
close so do the pledging activ- 
ities of the honorary and 
service sororities and frats 
here at LVC. Yes, it will be 
another semester before we get 
a glimpse of those darling 
Gamma Sigma Sigma pledges 
at breakfast in their bathrobes 
and pajamas. Not until next 
year will we see those hand- 
some Alpha Phi Omega 
pledges in their suits, carrying 
their books and bricks. But all 
the things these pledges endure 
— is it worth it? 

Sue Nolan, Gamma Sigma 
Sigma pledge president thinks 
it is. "Right now pledging 
seems like a lot of work, but I 
know in the long run it will 
pay off. I really like to work 
with people and help out 

Another point of view 
comes from APO pledge Scott 
Wien, "I thought pledging 
was too short; I had fun 
getting to know more people. I 
especially like the set up of 
APO, with the idea of service 
to community. It's nice to help 

Speaking from experience, 
this writer tends to agree with 
both of them. It is an awful lot 
of hard work, but it can be a 
great experience. You get to 
meet more people, you learn 
to humble yourself, and you 
learn to laugh at yourself, 
something crucial in the well- 
being of everyone. I've 
pledged two organizations al- 
ready and learned to love it. It 
is something that is an impor- 
tant part of my college life, 
and I will never regret it.

Adm issions In tensifies Recruiting 

In an effort to increase 
student enrollment at LVC, 
the admissions department 
will intensify its recruiting 
efforts this year in Maryland, 
Virginia, Florida, 
Connecticut, New York and 

Although the states of 
Maryland and Virginia will be 
the primary thrust, according 
to Gregory Stanson, Dean of 
Admissions, equal effort will 
be placed in Delaware, New 
Jersey, Pennsylvania and the 
District of Columbia. Stanson 

stated that the increase in the 
recruiting program is an 
ongoing process that has 
intensified as the competition 
has increased. 

Each admissions counselor 
covers a different territory 
according to the program. Bill 
Brown covers Maryland and 
Virginia, while Wendy Willard 
recruits students in the north- 
west areas such as New York, 
Connecticut and Massachu- 
setts. Counselors Kathy Harkey 
and Ron Good divide New 

Dean Stanson says that he 
tries to make personal visits to 
high schools whenever 
possible. "I still want to stay 
very active with the (high 
school guidance) counselors,"

might have a president on

Rutherford said, "but some 
good candidates say they may

Rutherford then proposed that 
the board accept the Executive

which states:

Rutherford added that the 

Acting President's term will 
not extend past June 30, 1984. 
"Naturally, one danger you 
have is when an Acting 
President wants to stay on," 
he acknowledged. He said the 
committee has an Acting 
President candidate in mind 
but would not reveal the 
candidate's name. He did say 
that the candidate is male, 
from "the area," and "knows

LVC Community Day 
Set for Saturday 

Lebanon Valley College will 
host its first annual 
Community Day on Saturday, 
October 29. 

Dr. Howard L. Applegate, 
vice president for college

way in which members of the 
community, regardless of age, 
can come to the campus and 
participate in a variety of 
activities ranging from a 
morning soccer match to an 
afternoon discussion on career 
goals and job placement." 

The day's activities begin 
with registration in the lobby 
of the Blair Music Center at

Host: Bob Gingrich, Director of Social Services, Lebanon, 

To respond to human needs as they are encountered, the 
social worker must call on a variety of skills and under- 
standing. Whatever the specific focus, this area requires an 
understanding of the factors which enhance or handicap the 
optimum development and functioning of the individual and 
society. The experience and insight of Mr. Gingrich will 
enable you to discuss the activities and opportunities encom- 
passed in this complex field.

Tune into WLVC 

by David Frye 

Tune your radio to 
"WLVC— 640 on your AM 
dial" to hear approximately 28 
students spin records to suit 
many tastes in music. 

"I think that any college 
radio station should reflect the 
sum total of the campus com- 
munity by having everyone's 
musical preferences 
expressed," said Bruce Peter- 
son, WLVC's President and 
Station Manager. 

WLVC has grown from an 
album-oriented rock radio 
club founded in 1977 to a 
something-for-everyone radio 
station. In an effort to reach 
many audiences, "Pete 
Johansson, the Program 
Manager, has matched 
different musical tastes to dif- 
ferent time slots," observed 

Types of music aired range 
from rock to Christian to 
comedy. "We have something 
realtively new this year — a 

comedy show," said Peterson, 
speaking of Nothing Serious 
by Mark Mason and Anthony 

WLVC does more than just 
broadcast music. Last week, 
Carl Dorsey, Vice-President 
and Treasurer of WLVC, and 
Peterson set letters to all stu- 
dents announcing a Dance-A- 
Thon. Sponsored by WLVC, 
the event, scheduled for 
Friday through Saturday, 
November 4-5, will raise 
money for The United Way. 

The 24-hour Dance-A- 
Thon, running from 7 p.m. to 
7 p.m., will take place in the 
East Dining Hall. The theme is 
Let's Dance, Our Way, The 
United Way. 

WLVC broadcasts its 
programs through the 
electrical wiring connecting 
the college center to the 
various dormitories and 
houses. The station is 
designated "carrier current 

AM," said Peterson. He 
pointed out that carrier 
current systems do not have 
licenses from the FCC. 

Future plans for WLVC 
include purchasing equipment 
to upgrade the station's capa- 
bilities. For approximately 
$22,000 to $25,000, the station 
could purchase new hardware 
to broadcast FM signals over a 
35-40 mile radius. 

Peterson sees this goal, 
along with the station's 
attempts to sell advertising, as 
steps toward achieving 
legitimacy in the ears of the 
station's listeners. 

WLVC has already achieved 
legitimacy in the opinion of 
the administration. In the 
event of severe inclement 
weather, the college will notify 
WLVC, along with its more 
widely known cousins 
(WSBA, WUFM, etc.), of 
cancelled classes.

Soocer Passes Well; 
Morrison Scores Again

reception for his team, APO. For intramural 
highlights , see page 7. 

by Tracy Wenger 

Joe Morrison tallied LVC's 
lone goal in a losing effort 
against Muhlenberg College 
on Oct. 22. Coming on a 
penalty kick in the second 
half, the goal was the second 
of the season for Morrison, 
who has scored LVC's only 
two goals. Muhlenberg's first 
goal in the game was an "own- 
goal" — a mistake that has 
plagued the Dutchmen all 

Previously, the squad lost to 
Widener 2-0 on Oct. 15 and 
were again defeated on Oct. 19 
by Juniata with a score of 3-0. 
"During all three of those 
games we were playing better 
offensively," says Coach Bruce 
Correll. "We are starting to 
pass the ball to ourselves — not 
to our opponents. Then we 
started getting more shots on 

The return of aggressive 
mid-fielder Scott Martin has 

helped the offensive thrust. 
Another injured player, Terry 
Brown has returned to 
fullback, enabling Correll to 
put Morrison back on the line. 
The quickest player with or 
without the ball, Morrison 
takes pressure off the LVC de- 
fense. Erik Enters, now 
playing at mid-field, pushes 
the ball up-field well. 

"After we scored the goal," 
says Correll, "we felt a lot 
better about ourselves." The 
goal proved what the players 
already knew, that they were 
maturing offensively. 

The team's two remaining 
games are on Saturday at 
home against Moravian and 
on Nov. 5 at home against 
Susquehanna. Correll says, 
"If Moravian beats us, they 
win the league, so that would 
be a nice one to win." He says 
that if the team continues to 
improve, Susquehanna should 
be a victory for LVC.

The outlook for next year is

Poor Half Causes Loss 

by DeniseMastovich 

Saturday, October 22, the 
Lebanon Valley Dutchmen 
football team traveled to 
Ursinus to suffer another dis- 
appointing defeat. The final 
score was 24-7. 

According to coach Lou 
Sorrentino, LVC played a 
good first half, but the 
Ursinus team was "too hungry 
for the win." Bob Krasley's 
touchdown in the first quarter 
put the Dutchmen within 
reach of a win. LVC came off 
tne line of scrimmage and 

drove the ball well, but was 
still behind 17-7 at half time. 

Somehow in the second 
half, the Valley began to fall 
apart. Coach Sorrentino said, 
"Defense was good, especially 
on the goal-line stand, but we 
just couldn't move the ball." 
John Taormina and Cliff 
Harro had exceptionally good 
runs throughout the game. 
Ursinus "managed to stop our 
control of the ball in the 
second half," according to

Widener answered with a goal

was tied at the half. Freshman 
Jean Coleman tallied a shot in 
the second half to give LVC 
the victory. 

LVC squeaked a 1-1 tie 
against Albright on Oct. 19. 
After two halves of an LVC- 
dominated game, regular play 
ended with a scoreless tie. 

After the first ten minutes of 
overtime play, neither team 
had scored. Then in the second 
overtime period, Albright 
scored on a hard, low corner 
shot to seemingly seal away 
the game. However, with 30 
seconds left to play, Kamann 
broke away and scored on a 
one-on-one against the 
Albright goalkeeper to give the 
Dutchmen a tie.

Flyer Outlines Food Changes 

by Amy Hostetler 

LVC students will soon 
receive a food services 
committee flyer announcing 
several changes in the food 
services department, 
according to committee 
chairman Ann Buchman. 

The food services 
department will institute a 
"BYOR," Bring Your Own 
Recipe. Any LVC student may 
submit a recipe from home to 
David Michaels, director of 
food services and conferences. 
"This will give students more 
of a hand in what we have," 

said Buchman. "If we get one 
good recipe out of 800 
students, that can make a 

Michaels and the food 
service committee plan to give 
students more responsibility in 
choosing the entrees, said 
Buchman. A voting system 
will help determine the popu- 
larity of certain entrees which 
will then determine if those 
entrees will be served again. 
Students will be asked to vote 
and will receive a ballot from 
the door-checker on their way 

out of the dining hall. 

"Whenever we have a new 
entree," Michaels said, "we'll 
asterisk-it, or put up a sign 
that says, 'Please give a 
written comment to the door- 
checker.' " This voting system 
will put the responsibility on 
the students, according to 
Buchman. "If they don't like 
it, we'll never have it again," 
she said. 

Another change will involve 
students from the first 
step — that of choosing to buy 
particular entrees and other 

foods. Michaels will post the 
purchase sheets he receives 
from the food companies and 
students will be able to suggest 
or comment on the types of 
food they would like to see 

After Thanksgiving 
vacation, the cafeteria lines 
will be altered. Instead of 
lining up in the middle of the 
cafeteria, students will enter 
from the "drinks side," get 
the hot foods, and then exit 
through the middle doors. A 
"super-salad bar," a soup bar 

and toasters will be erected in 
the middle of the dining hall. 
This will affect only the West 
Dining Hall, according to

LVC Raises 10 M 

by Scott Kirk 

Lebanon Valley College 
recently exceeded its $10 
million Fund for Fulfillment- 
Phase II goal by $400,000, 
thus completing funding for 
Garber Science Center, 
President Federick P. Sample 

In reaching that success, 
LVC has won the Josiah W. 
and Bessie S. Kline Founda- 
tion Challenge Grant of 
$250,000 by raising $1 million 
in new money since Dec. 1, 

The capital campaign was 

launched three years ago, 
according to Polly C. 
Ehrgood, director of develop- 
ment. The objectives were to 
build the new science center 
and add needed money to 
the endowment and the 
contigency funds. Sample 
achieved those goals as main 
fund-raiser for the project. 
Ehrgood handled the details 
through the Development 

"The faculty served as 
solicitors in the early days of 
the campaign," Ehrgood said. 

Open Forum Meeting 

The Committee on Extra- 
curricular Activities and 
Student Affairs will meet with 
interested students to discuss 
the guest policy. The commit- 
tee is composed of members of 
the Board of Trustees. 
Students wishing to meet with 
the committee should contact 
Cheryl Reihl, Director of 

Student Activities in the

"We received many 
generational gifts from 
alumni, and appealed to our 
constituencies. Alumni, 
faculty, churches, 
corporations, foundations and 
friends of the college all 
helped the campaign." 

"I'm thrilled that the goal 
has been succeeded, but that 
doesn't mean my work has 
ended," Ehrgood said. She 
noted that although the college 
received well over two-thirds 
of the funds in cash, the 
remainder is pledged as "con- 
firmed bequests." 

Ehrgood states that the 
Klein challenge was a great 
impetus in completing the 
funding. "We were also 
anxious to finish up before Dr. 
Sample left," she added. 

According to Ehrgood, the 
college has ongoing develop- 
ments. "We just made an 
appeal for equipment for the 
science center. A major 
foundation has made one gift, 
and might make another," she

p.2 The Quad Thursday, Nov. 10, 1983 



by Pete Johansson 

It's that time of year again: pre-registration. Ah, 
pre-registration. A glorious rite of academia, when 
students skip joyfully from advisor to Registrar, 
back to advisor, back to Registrar, back to advisor 
... OK, maybe it isn't all that joyful. But at least 
we're at a liberal arts college, where one may choose 
from a myriad of scholastic offerings, including 
some hot-off-the-presses courses added too late to 
make the Registration Schedule. To wit: 

En 114: Faking it 

A prerequisite for all English majors. The 
student learns to endlessly expostulate on books 
and authors he knows little or nothing about. 
Students are required to write five eight-page papers 
on five out-of-print novels by Czechoslovakian and 
Icelandic authors (don't bother looking for Cliff 
Notes on these) or one 25 -page paper encompassing 
hopelessly general themes for all five. Extra credit is 
granted to students who can write a five-page paper 
on wind imagery in Moby Dick having read only the 
back cover. 

En 348: Major Authors: Keats & Bombeck 
A comparative study. After reading selected 
works of John Keats and Erma Bombeck, students 
are required to submit a 15-page paper desperately 
trying to link La Belle Dame Sans Merci with mid- 

life crisis. 
Bi 116: Radiation 

Students radiate cockroaches until they turn into 
enormous 400-foot beasts that eat Garber, or 
radiate pre-historic dinosaur eggs until they hatch, 
like I saw on Batman one time. 

Bi 328: Elementary Feces 

I don't want to talk about this one. 

Bi 344: Animal Anatomy 

Do snakes have hips? Do flamingos have elbows? 
How do mice scratch their backs? These and other 
pointless questions are answered in this course. 

Mu 418: Basic Lounge Lizard 

Students learn to sing sentimental oldies nasally 


by Pete Johansson 

Seeing a musical on campus is always a little bit 
of a gamble. Sure, you can always count on good, 
strong voices, and an acceptable musical adaptation 
(there are enough music majors and music-minded 
people to insure that), but beyond that, you're 
really taking your chances as far as a quality 
performance is concerned. The last two weekends

velvet tuxedos with huge sequin G-clefs on the 
lapels. Final exam consists of the student singing 
"Feelings, ""Misty," and "Raindrops Keep Falling 
on My Head" consecutively without gagging. 

Mu 544: Tuba and Bagpipe Ensemble 

Recommended for the music major sick of music. 

PS 352: The Making of the Lebanon County 
Commissioner, 1984 

An exciting, in-depth study of the issues and 
candidates in the race for one of the free world's 
least significant positions.

you would have won. Godspell is the most pro- 
fessional show to hit campus in a long time, perhaps 

Godspell is an example of what theater on this 
campus can be, and director Wallace Umberger 
deserves the credit. Every detail, from the simple, 
stark set that beautifully accentuates the actors' 
costumes and movements, to the sleight of hand 
that makes props appear and disappear like they 
were in a Bugs Bunny cartoon, makes the audience 
realize they are watching something truly profes- 
sional. The pace isn't fast, it's instantaneous; 
Godspell has the spontaneity that only happens 
though the most careful and thorough direction. As 
a director, Umberger has taken the time to do 
things right, and the result is a show that absolutely 

Godspell is the story of Christ, focusing primarily 
on the Gospel of Matthew. The story starts with the 
baptism of Jesus by the prophet John the Baptist, 
and moves through Jesus' parables, his conflicts with 
the Pharisees and Sadducees, and his crucifix- 
tion. The cast consists of freshman Eric Shafer as 
Jesus, Rob Reynolds as John the Baptist/Judas 
Iscariot, and eight others as various disciples. The 
show itself is a sort of parable; The Greatest Story 
Ever Told, as told to Ringling Brother's clowns by a 
bunch of flower children. Or maybe the other way 
around; one can never be sure with a product of the 
sixties. What the show is is a celebration, a happi- 
ness not to be missed. 

Shafer's performance is outstanding. He does an 
excellent job of capturing the character's childlike 
innocence, yet retaining the strength and anger that 
the part requires. It is not easy to stand up on a 
stage and tell the audience stories they already know 
and make it affect them, yet Shafer pulls it off. 
While the rest of the cast blends magnificently to- 
gether, the performances of Marilyn Alberian and 
Erik Enters stand out as especially strong, and 

Not that the show is without fault. Umberger has 
a magnificent set, and it seems a waste not to use it 
more, instead of just placing actors on various bits 
of it. The musical numbers, while vibrant and crisp, 
seem to concern themselves too much with per- 
formance, rather than as extensions of the emotions 
of the play, creating a small break in the fluidity. 
But these are minor concerns, overwhelmed by the 
incredible energy and talent in the play. 

Godspell is LVC theater at its best. If you saw it, 
you were a part of a wonderful evening; if you 
missed it, you missed something that may not come 
again. This may be a small college, but the talent on 
that stage the last two weekends was enormous.

p.3 The Quad Thursday, Nov. 10,1983 


by David Frye 

During the past few weeks, people have asked 
questions about the function and purpose of The 
Quad. Some question the responsibility of editor- 
ials; some request promotion of campus activities. 
Perhaps the best way to clarify these issues is to set 
down a short glossary of terms explaining various 
facets of The Quad. 

Advertising: Advertising helps pay for the 
newspaper. Short articles on recitals, musicals, 
"LVC Presents...," and other activities appear 
from time to time. These articles help publicize 
events the editors feel have campus-wide signifi- 
cance. They are not advertisements. Because of 

Clearing The Air 

limited space, The Quad cannot publicize every 
activity of every campus group. Again, this is an 
editorial judgment, based this time on scope. 

Article: An article is a journalistic report of an 
issue, event or trend affecting the college 
community. Based on facts (interviews with people 
involved, letters, memos, etc.), the article presents 
the reader with the information necessary to form 
his own judgment. Which articles appear in each 
issue is decided by the editors; this is a judgment on 
our part. 

Editorial: An editorial offers an opinion based on 
the kind of facts appearing in an article or on an 

An Autumnal Shiver 

by David Frye 

What truly marks autumn for me is not the 
calendar, but the first hard frost. So fall, a time for 
the coming cold, seems the appropriate season for 
The Big Chill, a brilliantly written and acted en- 
semble-cast movie, which is the Diner for the 
counter-culturalists of the 1960's. 

But this is not a movie review. I mention The Big 
Chill because of the chilling touch the film had on 
me. Today's students have not marched on 
Washington, demonstrated against a war, or burnt 
draft notices, and yet we share a problem with the 
characters in this movie — loneliness. 

During their college years, the characters grew to 
have close, loving friendships. They all became 
occupationally "successful" after college, allowing 
their friendships to lapse in the process. Only the 
unexpected suicide of one friend brings the 
survivors together for one weekend. 

They engage in prolonged "rap sessions" and 
wonder where their commitment to causes and 
friendships has gone. At this point I sensed their 
longing for intimate friends; the superficiality of 
their "successful" lives has left them lonely. 

I sense, too, a pervasive loneliness among college 
students today. We seem estranged from each other 
by defenses of our own design and afraid to commit 
ourselves to developing deep, intimate relation- 
ships. The result is loneliness, which we often mask 
from others and even ourselves. Some adopt dis- 
interested attitudes, some fill schedules with ac- 
tivities, some retreat into shells, some drink. 


Editor's Note: The following is the final column 
in a five-part series on attitudes toward career 
planning. The contributing columnist is David 
Evans, Director of Career Planning and Placement, 
located in the Carnegie Building. 

Question 1. What are the most important aspects 
of career planning? 

Summed up in two questions: What skills do you 
have (or want to develop?) and how (and where) do 
you want to use those skills? 

Question 2. Where is the best place to start career 

Being at the right place at the right time is a 
factor in career planning which many attribute to 
luck; and this is the case in some instances. But you 
can also be in the wrong place at the right time: e.g. 
If you are talking with a friend, relative or 
acquaintance about you plans they may know of a 
Position or opportunity in another locale. The 
Primary point here is to talk with people about your 
Plans and background. 

Question 3. With whom do you talk? 

The top of the list would be people who work in 
the careers that interest you. No source is 

Maybe if we could each admit our loneliness to 
one other person, we would find someone as eager 
to confess the same in return. Just acknowledging a 
common problem is a great first step to making a 
new friend. What a gift to be thankful for this 

editor's impressions of a trend. The editor analyzes 
an issue and presents his view. Thus an editorial 
differs from an article. Editorials appear on pages 
two and three and are plainly marked as such. 

Features: A subdivision of the general term 
"article," features include "people stories" and 
"human-interest stories." Rather than focusing on 
policy, as news articles do, features highlight indi- 

News Article: A subdivision of the general term 
"article," the news article reports on college 
policies. Examples include the General Education 
Program, tuition hikes, and the like. 

Photos: If one picture is worth one thousand 
words, photos are a real space-saver. 

Sports Article: Self-explanatory. 

I hope this glossary will help you understnd the 
structure and function of The Quad and will help 
answer any questions you may have. As always, 
anyone is free to write a Letter to the Editor to 
comment on anything appearing in The Quad or 
happening on campus. Remember, if you are not 
satisfied with something, the only way to change it 
is to speak up. 

REVIEW... Educating Rita 

by Pete Johansson 

No, it's not a porn movie. Educating Rita is rated 

Now that we've got that cleared up, Educating 
Rita is a beautifully made film, about an English 
university professor trying to make a literature 
student out of a working-class English girl. My Fair 
Lady II? Not really. Pygmalion Revisited? Sort of. 
Throw a little bit of Frankenstein into that. But 
only a little. Oh, dear, this really is a complicated 
film. Let's start at the beginning. 

Educating Rita is directed by Lewis Gilbert and 
stars Michael Caine and Julie Walters. Into the 
office of a fed-up alcoholic professor of literature 
walks a mini-skirted, high-heeled hairdresser. She 
knows nothing of literature, and wants him to tutor 
her. Though over-talkative and under-classed, she 
is charming, and he does not want to mold her into 
a typical, flat student. She talks him into taking her 
on, and here begins her lessons and the complexity 


considered unimportant, however, all friends, 
relatives and casual acquaintances should be seen as 
resource leads. 

Question 4. How do you talk with people about 
career planning? 

If ther is a field you are definitely interested in 
you can ask a whole series of questions: What do 
you like about your work? How did you get into it? 
What skills and experience are needed by someone 
entering the field?... The conversation can be as 
intense or casual as you want to make it. The key 
word is information; you can use this information 
in developing resumes, letters, and questions for 
potential interviews or as a way of creating a new 

Question 5. How important is the resume and 

The old cliche goes: people hire people, not 
paper. The primary attribute of these two pieces of 
paper (both ideally only one page long) is they can 
be where you can't, i.e. they may open doors or hit 
the right spot at the right time. The phone is a third, 
and possibly more effective way to investigate, 
create, or develop job leads. 

of the film. 

To write as a literature student, she must 
abandon her simple passion, and write with the cold 
analysis necessary to get her degree. She does this, 
but is it through his doing or Rita's own choice? 
And does she abandon her humanness, or does she 
still hang on to it as a lifeline? You'll have to see the 
film and decide this for yourself, but I can say that 
the result is gratifying. Given the plot, it would be 
easy to guess the ending, were it not for the lack of 
stereotypes, and the essential humanness of the 

The performances of Caine and Walters, together 
with an outstanding script save this film from both 
trite comedy and trite tragedy. Both characters are as 
endearing as they are complex, and the result is a 
beautiful account of the relationship of two very 
different people. It's a funny and thoughtful film, 
and one that will perhaps be overlooked in the rush 
of winter films. See it. You may walk away a little 
confused, but nonetheless a little uplifted at what 
you have been part of. There are no fantastic 
special effects, no belly laughs, but the film is a 
wonderful change of pace from this season's

Marquette Stresses Policy's Pluses 

by Amy Hostetler 

After suffering the usual 
birth pangs, LVC's 10-week 
old guest policy has had a 
"positive" impact on the 
campus community, according 
to Dean of Students George 

"At this point, on the basis 
of what we've been told by the 
Resident Assistants and other 
students, the reaction to the 
guest policy has been 
uniformly positive,'' 
Marquette said. "I think we 
originally had some 
concerns — we found out 
belatedly about two roommate 
problems — but our attitude is 
one of encouragement to come 
to us (the Dean of Students 
Office) and resolve the 

At the Oct. 22 meeting of 
the Board of Trustees, the 
chairman of the extracurricu- 
lar activities and student 
affairs committee, George S. 
Glen, reported the progress of 
the policy implementation to 
the board. Several board 
members spoke against the 

policy they had passed last 
May. "The intensity was a 
surprise to us," said 
Marquette of the board's 
reaction. "The fact is, as I told 
Glen, the reports we have are 
that, either the RAs don't see 
any observable change or they 
see an improvement in the 
dorm atmosphere." Glen will 
report to the board on the 
overall progress at the next 
board meeting. 

"I may be criticized for not 
emphasizing morality, but 
once the board has acted, it's 
my responsibility to 
implement the policy in the 
spirit intended," he said. 

According to Marquette, 
the Dean of Students Office 
has received criticism from 
some parents who felt they 
should have had "input" 
before the policy was changed, 
as well as from some board 
members. He feels, however, 
that the guest policy will not 
be revoked. 

"I personally believe," 
Marquette said, "that the

Marquette said that as the 
committee is "laying the 
ground" for next semester's

the board will continue the 
policy. "I do not see how a

The commitee will conduct 
an open forum meeting with 
LVC students on Dec. 1 (see 
front page for details). 
Marquette said this meeting 
offers students an important 
opportunity to voice their 
opinions on the new policy as 
well as other aspects of student 
life. "It's important for 
students to express accurately

The 1984-85 college catalog 
is out, and filled with courses 
and programs that have not 
been offered at LVC for two 
years. Except for the names of 
new faculty members, the 
schedule, and cover, the 
catalog remains from previous 
years. In an interview with 
Mary Williams, the new 
director of publications, she 
explained the reason for these 

Williams began her position 
in August, long after the 
catalog had been planned. In 
August, there was only time 
and money to insert the names 
of new professors, and 
nothing else could be done 

about the content. A former 
book and scientific journal 
publisher, Williams says she

catalog from scratch, 
completely updating and 
revising it so that prospective 
students will get an honest 
look at Lebanon Valley 

As far as the content, 
Williams said that in next

concerned primarily with the 
production of the publication, 
but "deplores the inconsisten- 
cies" in the present catalog, 
and will see to it that the

Shay Given Award 

Ralph S. Shay, assistant 
dean and registrar of Lebanon 
Valley College, was recently 
presented with a special recog- 
nition award from Pi Gamma 
Mu, the international honor 
society in social science, for 
his services to the society. 
LVC President Frederick P. 
Sample presented the award to 
Shay at the October LVC 
faculty meeting. 

Shay has worked with the 
LVC Nu chapter of Pi Gamma 
Mu and served as the 

Governor of the Pennsylvania 
Province for ten years. 

Shay, a 1942 graduate of 
Lebanon Valley College, first 
joined the LVC faculty as an 
assistant professor of history 
in 1948. Since then, he has

"These changes will bring

and comments from the food

said. The committee consists 
of students, staff and adminis- 
trators who "have expressed 
an interest to the manage- 
ment," said Buchman. The 
committee meets with 
Michaels, Betsy Gow, 
assistant director of food 
service, and Chris Roseberry, 
head cook, to discuss 
complaints, suggestions and

Michaels usually tries to

and suggestions, but we can't 
satisfy the entire student 
body," she added.

Fall Sports Wrap-up 


On Parents' Day, October 
29, the LVC football team 
fought to a 7-7 tie against 
Western Maryland. Then, on 
Nov. 5, the Dutchmen 
suffered a loss at the hands of 
Muhlenberg, 20-14. "I was 
very proud of how the team 
played in those games," says 
Coach Lou Sorrentino. 

Sorrentino complimented the 
linebackers play in the 
Western Maryland game, 
while citing the outstanding 
performances of Wayne 
Meyer, John Dayton, Kurt 
Musselman, Ralph Ackerman 
and Martin McCabe. 

"In the Muhlenberg game 
we were hurt by lack of 
depth," says Sorrentino. 
"Our defense got tired and it 
isn't that we need more con- 
ditioning. Too many people 
play too many positions, 
special teams, etc." 

According to Sorrentino, 
the entire offensive line played 
well against Muhlenberg, 
opening holes for John 
Taormino and Cliff Harro. 

"The team has jelled," says 
Sorrentino, "and if we 
continue to play like the last 

two games, our final game 
against Washington and Lee 
(5-3) will be a good game — 
right down to the wire." 


"A lot of frustration" is the 
way Coach Kathy Tierney des- 
cribes this year's hockey 
season. This frustration 
stemmed from the outcome of 
the games, since the squad did 
not lose by more than one goal 
in many game but Gettysburg. 
"Over the entire season, we 
outshot our opponents 2:1," 
says Coach Tierney. But the 
team couldn't seem to 
consistently put the ball in the 

After losing to Messiah 
College 1-0 on a penalty 
stroke, the team ended its 
season with a victory over 
Susquehanna, 1-0, on a goal 
by Jean Coleman. 

"The team's cohesion and 
ability as individuals to handle 
this frustration and reorganize 
allowed us to win the games 
we did," says Coach Tierney. 

The team will lose five 
seniors including Mary Jean 
Bishop, Deb Detwiler, Sheila 
McElwee, Mary MacNamara 
and Laurie O'Brian. 


LVC's soccer team ended a 
winless season in a positive 
manner, as Coach Bruce 
Correll states, "In the Susque- 
hanna and Moravian games, I 
was very pleased with the 
offensive play." Improved 
offensive play has been a goal 
of the team all season. In spite 
of this improvement, the 
Dutchmen lost to Susque- 
hanna 5-0 on Nov. 5, after 
previously losing to MAC 
Champion Moravian, 3-0 and 
F&M, 9-1. In the F&M game, 
the goal came on a shot by 
Tom Braswell with an assist by 
Erik Enters. 

Correll calls the team 
"snake bit," saying that they 
got no breaks this year as the 
ball seemed to bounce the 
wrong way. "We are building 
up a debt for next year," says 

Naming the seniors as 
Dennis Delducco and Rich 
Troutman, Correll notes the 
play of seniors Jed Duryea and 
Joe Morrison. "Joe worked 
hard and had a good year, 
while Jed played exceptionally 
well when he returned from 
being injured."

Peterson Named President 

by A my Hostetler 

In a special meeting held 
Dec. 3, LVC's Board of 
Trustees named Dr. Arthur L. 
Peterson as the college's 14th 
president. Peterson will assume 
his duties March 1, 1984 and 
board president F. Allen 
Rutherford will serve as acting 
president from Jan. 1, 1984 to 
March 1 . 

During a press conference 
following the board meeting 
and in an exclusive interview, 
Peterson stressed management 
and leadership in the presiden- 
cy as well as community ser- 

Peterson said he wants to 
increase the college's 
"outreach" to the community 
and area businesses. By 
cooperating and aiding 
businesses, he hopes the 
business community will give 
the college the financial sup- 
port it needs. 

He accepted the presidency 
because he "enjoys the 
challenge of working with a 
college... Secondly, because of 
the nature of the college. It's a 
very strong church-related 
liberal arts college with a 
distinguished record. I was 

really impressed by the 
dedication of the board, the 
faculty, the administration 
and the students I met," 
Peterson said. "One couldn't 
help but be impressed." 

Convinced that leadership is 
essential in all phases of the 
college community, Peterson, 
who has taught leadership 
seminars, said he wants to 
"get back to the origins of 
leadership" and practice what 
he preached. "It's an exciting 
thing, to help others be more 
successful leaders. 
We desperately need leaders... 
Maybe I can help develop 

The stress on leadership and 
management surfaced again in 
Peterson's view of the role he 
will play as LVC's new 

"A president is many per- 
sons," he said. "The president 
is head of state... chief ad- 
ministrator. . .chief legislator. . . 
I think the president comes 
forward with ideas, innovative 
suggestions, so, in that sense, 
he is an initiator of policy. The 
president is also, in many 
ways, a symbol of the in- 


According to Peterson, the 
president is also a member of 
the faculty and an "academic 
leader. I'm deeply interested in 
the academic program," he 

To Peterson, a liberal arts 
education is "critical to being 
more effective as a leader. 
There's a tie to understanding 
one's self (that a liberal arts 
education encourages) and 
being a strong leader." 

Peterson hopes to use his 
experience in politics and 
academics as a tool to bring 
together the various "con- 
stituencies" of the campus. "I 
like to think of the college 
community as a continuous 
fabric," he explained. The 
thrust of his administration 
will be "getting people to 
work together," he said. 

He explained that the 
initials "LVC" for him stand 
for "Aife-long learning for 
leadership Kalues based upon 
the liberal arts, and leading to 
a sense of Community." 

Most of his first few months 
as president will be spent 
assessing the college's 

strengths and weaknesses. 
Peterson listed LVC's 
strengths as including the 
academic program, the 
tradition of service, the 
facilities and faculty and 
student spirit. 

The physical facilities, he 
said, are very good, but he has 
"heard a lot of interest in im- 
proving the athletic facilities, 
especially from the students." 
Peterson noted that he does 
not plan any immediate 

Although he does not take 
office until March 1, Peterson 
will be on hand for many of 
the college's functions. He 
said that during that period, 

he plans to use the time to get 
acquainted with the faculty 
and staff, probably through 
open houses. Peterson added 
that he would like to visit the 
students in the dormitories to 
"see them in their environ- 

Peterson currently serves as 
dean of special programs at 
Eckerd College, St. Peter- 
sburg, Florida. Since joining 
the staff in 1980, he has 
developed several special 
programs and played a major 
role in fund raising.

from Yale University in 1947 
with an A.B. degree in

FAF Red Tape Cut 

David Frve -M. 

by David Frye 
Christine Koterba, Director 
of Financial Aid, recently an- 
nounced a change in 
procedures for applying for 
financial aid. By allowing 
students to file only the Penn- 
sylvania State Grant/Federal 
Student Aid Application 
(PHEAA form), instead of 
both the PHEAA form and 
the Financial Aid Form 
(FAF), the new policy will save 
students the seven-dollar filing 
fee for the FAF. 
Because the PHEAA form 

essentially duplicates the FAF 
for free rather than for seven 
dollars, and at the same time 
allows students to apply for 
virtually all types of financial 
aid, Koterba felt it 
unnecessary to require both 

Out-of-state students should 
also file the PHEAA form, ex- 
cluding section H. 

Students from Connecticut, 
Delaware, Maryland, 
Massachusetts, Ohio, Rhode 

Island and Vermont must still 
complete the FAF, although 
they may file the PHEAA 
form for free. In addition, 
these students should still file 
though their own states to be 
considered for all possible 
financial aid. 

The deadline for filing the 
PHEAA form is April 1, 1984, 
for returning students. Forms 
will be mailed to students who 
filed a PHEAA form last year. 
Other students may pick one 
up in the Financial Aid Office. 

LVC's 14th President— Dr. Arthur L. Peterson will assume 
presidential responsibilities on March 1, 1984. He will present 
the Second Semester Opening Convocation Address.

Options Abound Abroad 

by Maria Montesano 

Editor's Note: The 
following is the first of a two- 
part series on alternative 
educational opportunities at 
Lebanon Valley College. 

There is more than one way 
to graduate from LVC. 

LVC offers two major 
programs of study abroad. 
These are the International 
Student Exchange Program 
(ISEP) and exchanges through 
Central College. Students can 
study abroad or off-campus 
for one or two semesters and 
in some cases, summers. 

ISEP allows a student to 
enroll in a foreign university 
while earning academic credit 
toward a degree at LVC. The 
exchange student lives among 
the foreign students and func- 
tions as a part of the foreign 
society chosen, according to 
Dr. Robert Clay, director of 
the ISEP program at LVC. 

ISEP offers programs in 18 
countries on six continents, 
Clay said. Programs include 
sites in Africa, Asia, 

Australia, Britain, Canada, 
Europe and Latin America. 
Languages include Chinese, 
English, French, Portuguese, 
Spanish and Thai. 

Expenses include regular 
tuition fees to LVC plus a few 
additional charges for such 
things as transportation, 
books, travel, insurance and 
incidentals. Most financial aid 
from LVC can be applied to 
the exchange. 

This program is available to 
any full-time LVC student. 
Some colleges, however, such 
as those in Britain or Germany 
may require the exchange 
student to be on a junior level 
or higher. Also, this program 
demands a high standard of 
language knowledge. 

An ISEP directory is 
available for any interested 
students, explaining the dif- 
ferent colleges abroad. For 
example, if a student were in- 
terested in exchange in 
Australia, there would be a 
choice of three ISEP member 
colleges in Austrailia. If the 

Letter to the Editor 


Dear Editor: 

It's about time one of the friendliest faces on campus is 
recognized. Always a strong advocate for positive thinking, 
she remains optimistic no matter what the odds. 

For those of us who know her well, her services are often 
taken for granted. For example, we count on her to be on 
campus from eight o'clock in the morning until quitting 
time — which is never earlier than five o'clock for one so 

Her years of experience make her wise, kind of like E.T. or 
Yoda. Her advice has never failed when the "chips are 
down." In her soft spoken voice as she looks beyond, one can 
hear her say, "Have faith." 

No matter how busy she may be and usually is, she always 
offers her time and self. And she gives freely without any 
reservation. It is just a part of her nature. Sincerity is never in 

Her kindness and caring have made her very loved and 
admired. Time should be stopped for one such as she. Thank 
you, Mrs. Herr, for everything.

"Positive" Meeting 
Produces Results 

by Amy Hostetler 

In an attempt to "hear 
student concerns and share 
feelings on the new guest 
policy," the committee on ex- 
tracurricular activities and 
student affairs met with more 
than 75 students in three open 
forum meetings held Dec. 1 . 

Committee chairman 
George S. Glen said the 
committee wanted to discuss 
the guest policy and other 
aspects of student life with 
students in a "non-adversarial 

Committee members asked 
students for suggestions to 
"refine" the guest policy. 
Students mentioned several 
possibilities including visitor 
passes, better escort systems, 
and registration for all guests. 
Glen said he considers the 
escort system "essential" to 
the policy, but seemed recep- 
tive to the various ideas. 

Students also discussed 
complaints, suggestions and 
criticisms in other areas of 
student life. The alcohol 
policy was the most frequently 
discussed, with students of- 
fering options and variations 
to the college's present policy. 

The overall impression, 
from students and committee 
members, was positive. "I 
thought they were good," said 
Dr. Agnes O'Donnell, a mem- 
ber of the committee. "The 
students' opinions were open, 
informative and well- 
considered. They showed 

maturity and insight." 

O'Donnell called the 
meetings "a very positive ex- 
perience. One of the things we 
(the committee ) found is that 
we have more insight into the 
students... We felt there was 
more serious and considered 
support of the new program." 

According to O'Donnell, 
the discussions "strengthened 
our convictions" about the 
policy. She said the committee 
will continue to support the 
guest policy unless reports on 
the second semester of this 
academic year show that 
student support, including 
following the guidelines, 

One of the committee's con- 
cerns dealt with security 
measures and privacy rights. 
O'Donnell said, however, that 
the campus security hasn't 
"deteriorated" and, in some 
cases, has actually improved. 

"I think that the openness 
with which the students came 
to the meeting... and the give- 
and-take, is a very healthy 
thing," said O'Donnell. She 
commented that students con- 
sistently remarked about their 
positive change in attitude 
about themselves and the 

At this time, the committee 
does not plan to hold another 
open forum meeting this year. 
They will present their fin- 
dings to the Board of Trustees 
at the May 1 1 , 1984 meeting.

THE RIGHT STUFF. "God Bless Us" 

by Pete Johansson 

(Well, Mr. Peanut, here we go again. This will be 
it for a while, however. After this we can put the 
cover back on the typewriter and begin acting as a 
normal human being again. Christmas is coming, 
Mr. Peanut. We can shift into neutral and take on 
the sad, simple joys of family life. We can try to 
regain some semblance of realism. That harried, 
tortured grin will be erased, and we can at last wear 
the expression of humble gratitude for making it 
through another semester. We can stop whining, 
Mr. Peanut. Just as soon as we finish typing.) 

Hello. Christmas nears, and I know what you're 
thinking. What does Pete Johansson want for 
Christmas? My needs are simple. To help out, 
here's a brief list of some of the items you might 
want to consider stuffing my stocking with: 

—A recording of Dr. Hanes singing, Stand By 
Your Man. 

—A homeland for the Palestinians, to end some 
of the brouhaha in the Middle East. I suggest New- 

—Long Weekend. Also, I'd like to cut down 
Thanksgiving break so professors don't feel obli- 
gated to assign 1,000 pages of reading over one 
week. While we're at it, we might as well cut down 
Christmas break, too. Five weeks in Reading is the 

(We started typing when we were eight years old. 
Remember that, Mr. Peanut? Since then, we've 
typed thousands of pages of stories, poems, and 
essays. Not essays, really, Mr. Peanut. Screeds. 
Desperate, aching screeds. Unnatural for an adoles- 
cent, and dangerous for an adult. It's pathetic, isn't 
it, Mr. Peanut? We're so busy writing about how 
we feel that we can 't feel much anymore. If we had 
any sense, we'd smash our typewriters, burn our 
records and books, and go off and play tag with a 
child somewhere. But we can't, Mr. Peanut. We 
can no more do that than a turtle can destroy its 
own shell. We're lost.) 

— Some of Santa's elves. Blonde ones. 

— A Technics stereo system, with FM equalizer, 
AM neutralizer, fifteen cassette decks, a five-speed 
manual overdrive turntable, a genuine artificial 
rosewood receiver with 19,000-watt 148 ohm, 1,500 
MPG cast iron speakers, and a mahogony combina- 
tion blender/lighter/gunrack on the side. 

— Invitations for two to a New Year's Eve party 

at Hunter S. Thompson's Woody Creek, Colorado 
home. Guests are to include Jack Nicholson, 
Christie Brinkley, Nastassia Kinski, Stevie Nicks, 
Dyan Cannon, Rodney Dangerfield, Tim Leary, 
Mortimer Adler, Mr. T, Margaret Thatcher, 
Margaret Trudeau, Gary Trudeau, John DeLorean 
(to bring the refreshments), Margot Kidder, and 
Harrison Ford. At midnight I want William F. 
Buckley, Jr. to pop out of a cake, and I want Mr. T 
to punch him in the mouth. 

— A spaceship from Star Wars. Not a toy from 
Kenner, but a real, fully operational Death Star. 

(Why is it so hard to be thankful, Mr. Peanut? 
The guilt racks us when we're not, and that dark 
cynicism stabs us when we are. There are people 
that love us, Mr. Peanut, despite what we've 
become. God bless them, because we hardly make it 
easy. Old folks and babies aren 't the only ones that 
can be cranky. We manage it every day, for no 
reason at all. It makes people sick. It's made us 
sick. Maybe that's why we love, no need, Christmas 
so much. It's a time when those dark, atavistic 
grumblings are assuaged, and despite what Perry 

Como and the Osmonds tell us about the "true 
meaning of Christmas" we manage to find it 
ourselves. We're at last humble, and the beauty of it 
brings us honest awe. We can finally love back. 
And we need that, Mr. Peanut, or everyone would 
give up on us.) 

— A job for when I graduate. Something like Andy 
Rooney has. I think I could get used to the idea of 
being paid large sums of money to write drivel like 
this once a week. 

— A streetcar named Desire. Not a copy of the 
play, but a streetcar named Desire. 

— A 1,000 horsepower, fuel injected Smith- 
Corona typewriter that spits out doctoral theses and 
Pulitzer columns when you look at it hard. 

— Immortality. 

(We're tired, Mr. Peanut. Otherwise we wouldn't 
talk this way. Let's finish typing this and sing a 
Christmas carol. No, not Jingle Bells. God Rest Ye, 
Merry Gentlemen was written for times like this. 
Eggnog can 't hold a candle to Comfort and Joy, no 
matter how much rum we put in. Merry Christmas, 
Mr. Peanut. Merry, Merry Christmas.)

The end of each year is a time for reflection, a

The Most Embarrassing Typo, Caught Before 


by David Frye 

This coming New Year's Eve will mark the end of 
a chapter in the life of Dr. Frederick P. Sample, 
President of Lebanon Valley College. On that day, 
he will conclude his tenure as president and leader 
of this institution. In line with this happening, and 
building upon the tendency to evaluate the past at 
the end of the year, let me offer a perspective on 
President Sample. This will augment, with words, 
the pictoral perspective on pages four and five. 

First of all, President Sample, as an administra- 
tor and source of information, was always accessi- 
ble to me, as a reporter. He would willingly 
schedule time to talk with me about whatever issue 
burned in my mind. In fact, he once saw me without 
an appointment. This accessibility epitomizes the 
personal approach LVC cultivates in all of its 

Secondly, President Sample always displayed 
integrity in his observations. He would never violate 
the boundaries of what he thought was ethical. 
While at times this meant I couldn't squeeze the 
admission of complicity from him which I so sorely 

wanted, I could never fault him for his integrity. 

Thirdly, President Sample dedicated himself fully 
to the cause of Lebanon Valley College. I don't 
think anyone could argue convincingly that 
President Sample put his own interests ahead of 
what he perceived to be the college's best interests. 
We may have been frustrated, because our views 
may not have coincided with his, but his dedication 
remains about doubt. 

Despite these qualities, President Sample made the 
right decision to resign. Change and growth go 
hand-in-hand. LVC has changed and grown since 
1968, and so has President Sample. But there comes 
a point when one reaches a plateau of maturity in 
one environment. In citing the completion of the 
Garber Science Center and the Fund for Fulfill- 
ment-Phase II campaign, as well as the need for 
change in leadership, President Sample offered 
ample reason to resign. He leaves this college, 
secure in the knowledge it will continue to grow and 
change under new guidance, and we say 
"farewell," secure in the knowledge Dr. Frederick 
P. Sample will do just that. 

Press-time: In the recent front-page article on the 
new computer lab, a reference to "Dr. Joerg W.P. 
Mayer, Chairman of the Department of Mathe- 
matical Sciences" almost got by me. Catching this 
understandable oversight saved me much 

The Largest Issue: A 10-pager from second 
semester last year was fully 55 percent the size of 
The Daily News of Lebanon put out the same day. 

The Most Ill-fated "Regular" Feature: Dialogue 
appeared over one year ago, introduced only to fill 
up space, and finally bore fruit in a face-off over 
the Moral Majority's policies. Such "regularity" I 
wouldn't wish on my worst enemies. 

The Closest Approach to Real-World 
Journalism: Last year, when President Sample 
announced his resignation at a Thursday, 1 1 :00 AM 
faculty meeting, The Quad ran a front-page article 
announcing this in the issue appearing the same 
afternoon. We did this by having The Quad printed 
with a blank space where the article would go 
(bumping off an earlier-written piece) and then 
running the copies though the press a second time. 
Our coverage was more in-depth than The Daily 
News (no large achievement)! 

The Most Amusing Response to an Editorial 
Page Coupon Clip-out Campaign: Do you 
remember "The First Annual LVC All-Campus 
Fall Cookout and Bonfire" coupon? Those clipped 
out were sent to Dean Reed, promulgator of 
traditions. He remarked to me after the date for the 
event had passed that we should have a bonfire with 
the handful of coupons he received. Then he added 
that maybe we should schedule a meeting to discuss 
student apathy and hold it in a telephone booth. 

The Most Cooperative Staff: A slight prejudice 
pushes me toward naming the staff of The Quad 
winner in this category. Putting out a college 
newspaper, even a bi-weekly one, is more than one 
person can do alone (believe me, I've tried to 
approach this level, and it only leads to frustration 
and extreme fatigue) and required teamwork and 
dedication. Someone on the staff was always willing 
to dedicate some time and effort when needed. 
Oftentimes, we begin to expect others to perform 
certain tasks and forget to offer thanks. I may have 
forgotten, but now I say: "Thank you for your

A Presidential Sampler 

by David Frye 

Dr. Frederick P. Sample, 
President of Lebanon Valley 
College, will conclude his fif- 
teen-and-one-half-year tenure 
at the end of this month. On 
the day before Thanksgiving, 
he set aside some time to 
reflect on his experiences at 
LVC and offered several ob- 
servations on the college, its 
people, and the status of 
higher education. 

When asked what he feels 
are his major accomplishmen- 
ts as president of LVC, Sam- 
ple responded, "I believe I'd 
like to think of two areas, both 
of which I would classify in 
the 'major' category. One of 
those would be the im- 
provement of the facilities and 
the environment in which to 
conduct our major programs. 
Another would be widening 
the diversity of the people and 
the backgrounds of the people 
who are the faculty and the 

Sample noted two major 
challenges facing LVC, "I 
think the two toughest 
challenges are centered around 
carefully articulating and 
having people on campus 
unify themselves behind a 
general type of college image, 
which everyone sees as the 
kernal of this institution. And 
the other thing is sufficient 
financial support." 

Four qualities seem to 
characterize the people of 
LVC, according to Sample. 
Persons exhibit concern for 
each other, dedication to the 
"centrality of the academic," 
an almost universal willingness 
to forgive and forget, and 
forthrightness in stating and 
defending a position. 

In response to the question, 
"How do you feel about deep 
snow?" Sample said, after 
chuckling a bit, "I think that 
experience is a good example 
of what I just referred to. I 
was initially upset about that, 
and yet I had a few students 
laughing with me and about it 
the evening after it happened. 
I was concerned about disre- 
gard for safety and extremism, 
but the morale factor was 

Turning to the state of higher 
education, especially at small, 
church-related, liberal arts in- 
situtions, Sample observed, "I 
see two things which disturb 
me greatly and one which en- 
courages me immensely. The 
encouraging direction first — 
I'm motivated by what has 
happened recently. The need 
for reform in education speaks 
in terms of returning to the 
basics; this includes the basic 
sciences, the social sciences, 
the humanities, thus getting a 
stronger foundation to allow 
specializing at a late date. This 
is all right down the alley of 

this kind of institution. I think 
that we can boast of our 
preaching this philosophy for 
a number of years." 

"I am concerned," Sample 
continued, "by this whole at- 
titude that you must do 
anything and everything to get 
more students." In addition, 
he cited the sluggishness of the 
American public to realize and 
colleges to promote the fact 
that "one of the nice by- 
products of an educated 
people is an efficient 

In reference to the push to 
enroll more students, Sample 
said, "The best publicity 
program we can have is our 
educational program." 

Sample outlines three 
reasons behind what many 
perceive as student apathy. A 
large percentage of LVC 
students are dedicated to their 
majors, thus they have little 
free time. Secondly, a small 
community such as Annville 
does not allow students to pur- 
sue many off-campus social 
activities. Thirdly, in their free 
time, students tend to focus 
their energies on only one or 
two pastimes. 

The experimental guest 
policy, in general, meets Sam- 
ple's approval. He does, 
however, remain opposed per- 
sonally to overnight guests. 
Also, he thinks the policy 
needs to be evaluated to ensure 

it preserves students' rights to 
security and privacy. Finally, 
he feels the policy should be 
altered to close the 
"loopholes" which presently 

When questioned about his 
position on alcohol use on 
campus, Sample said, "I guess 
my comment related to that 
has to do with the fact that I 
do not approve. I don't have 
much confidence in any of the 
arguments I have heard for a 
program or a formula or 
whatever to improve the 
situation on campus. There is 
no insititution, of which I have 
heard, which has a special 
program, whether it's limiting 
it to the rooms, or limiting it 
to the pub on campus, that has 
solved the problem." 

"No program has demon- 
strated long-term success. 
There are some programs, 
which, for a few years after 
their initiation, have indicated 
some success, but as soon as 
the students graduate, who 
initiated the program, the suc- 
cess of the program goes 
down. Alcohol is a societal 
problem," Sample concluded. 

In parting, Sample said, "I 
can honestly say it's been an 
enjoyable, rare privilege to 
have been president, just 
because of our academic 
program and the kind of 
people here at LVC."

Editor's Note: Michele 
Glasow, a senior majoring in 
Biochemistry, offered these 
thoughts to President and 
Mrs. Sample at the November 
11 Testimonial Dinner held in 
the President's honor. 
Glascow spoke as the student 

Although my personal con- 
tacts with President Sample 
have been limited to orien- 
tation picnics at Kreiderheim, 
a few Tuesday luncheons in 
the president's dining room, 
and passing greetings on cam- 
pus, from these brief contacts 
I know Dr. Sample was a warm 

and friendly man, always of- 
fering a smile or a few pleasant 
words, and willing to take part 
in campus life. 

Like most other students 
here at LVC, I know President 
Sample better indirectly, 
through his effects on campus 
life. I know he puts in long 
hours — I've often seen his car 
parked behind the Ad- 
ministration Building before 
8:00 a.m. While the 
distribution of his annual 
spring notice encouraging us 
to use the sidewalks to give the 
grass a chance to grow may 
not be an anxiously awaited 
occurrence, it has almost 

become tradition, and it is one 
example of many showing Dr. 
Sample's concern for and 
pride in our campus. Perhaps 
his greatest influence on my 
life as a biochemistry major and 
on the lives of other science 
majors at LVC has been his 
commitment to the completion 
of Garber Science Center and 
the Fund for Fulfillment. The 
time and energy he spent 
helped to make that dream a 
reality for all of us. 

One of the ways I best know 
President Sample is through 
talking with administrators 
and faculty who speak so 
highly of him. From them, I 

know Dr. Sample as an honest 
and open man who keeps his 
word. It's a good feeling to 
know the president of our 
college is concerned with 
students' needs and is in- 
terested in our point of view. 
I've heard he's even come to 
see our side of Snow-Ins! 

I know change is necessary 
and inevitable, but some 
changes are less pleasant than 
others. Dr. and Mrs. Sample, 
I'm sorry to see you leave 
LVC. Thank you for your part 
in making LVC the wonderful 
college experience it has been 
for myself and so many

Would you like to lead a 
dual life? Joe Tucci seems to. 
While a student at LVC, Joe is 
simultaneously a teacher at 
Harrisburg Area Community 
College. Joe studies voice at 
LVC and even though he is 
still developing his talents, he 
has held a position as a paid 
soloist for the past three years. 

As a member of the part- 
time faculty at HACC, Joe in- 
structs a self-defense course. 
However, Joe is still very in- 
volved in perfecting his skills 
in the art of Jigo-Jutsu, other- 
wise known as self-defense. 

After an extended absence, 
Joe recently reentered martial 
arts, achieving an impressive 
second place standing at the 
national YMCA Judo cham- 
pionships. This was only the 
third competition Joe has ever 
entered. Joe has a green belt in 
Judo but to gain second place 
he defeated two brown belts, a 
higher ranking than his own. 

He explains, "Your 
proficiency level depends on 
how much you practice." The 
opportunity to "match the 
quality" of more experienced 
people is part of the challenge 
and enjoyment involved in 

In Jigo-Jutsu, the art of 
self-defense, Joe holds a blue 
belt. He is the most advanced 
student in his class, as well as

coaches selected for the 1984 
Olympic Games. 

Joe has volunteered his ser- 
vices as instructor of the LVC 
self-defense club. The club 
meets three times each week 
from four to five o'clock in 
Activites Four. What is 
"unique about the art we

Valley Cagers 
Down the Mules 
for First Victory 

by Tracy Wenger 

After losing four games, the 
LVC men's basketball team 
came back to defeat Muhlen- 
berg 70-68 on Dec. 3. Co- 
captains Bobby Johnston and 
Fred Siebecker led the Dutch- 
men attack with 18 and 10 
points, respectively, while Bert 
Kreigh topped all scorers with 
31 points. 

"Since they beat us twice 
last year," says Coach Gordon 
Foster, "this was an especially 
good win." He says that even 
after the four consecutive 
losses, the team worked hard 
and never gave up. "They 
knew we'd win one soon," 
says Foster. 

The Dutchmen, who have 
been hitting the boards much 
harder, outrebounded 
Muhlenberg 34-26. He credits 
the "taller unit" he has been 
using with the increased power 
on the boards. The taller unit 
includes 6 '7 " Jon Spotts and 
Kreigh and 6 '5" Steve Whit- 

Another factor in the vic- 
tory was the press which 
Foster says caused a lot of tur- 
novers. "They had a super 
team all around," says Foster. 
"It was a great win." 
Muhlenberg was one of the 
toughest teams that LVC will 
face with the exception of 

The squad lost to Moravian 
College on Nov. 30 with a 
score of 71-61, in their first 
conference game. Although 
the team came to within three 
with minutes left, Moravian 
broke open the lead to ten 
points and the clock ran out. 

Kreigh led the Dutchmen with 
19 points, while Whitman con- 
tributed 11. Johnston and 
Siebecker each netted 10. 

Against Ursinus, the Dut- 
chmen lost in an overtime 96- 
92 game. Kreigh scored an im- 
pressive 34 points. Pat Zlogar 
added 16, Johnston 15, and 
Siebecker 10. 

In perhaps the toughest 
game of the season, LVC came 
up short against Division I 
Loyola College, 124-79. 
"They were awesome," says 
Coach Foster. "All of them 
were 6 '5" or 6 '6" and they 
could jump us right out of the 
gym." Kreigh scored 26 poin- 
ts, while Zlogar had 14. 

In the season opener on 
Nov. 21, the Dutchmen were 
defeated by Millersville 
University 76-74 in a hard- 
fought game. Kreigh netted 20 
points and Johnston followed 
with 19. Siebecker and Whit- 
man rounded out the scoring 
with 14 and 1 1 points. 

"We have the offense," 
says Foster, stating that the 
team averages a shooting per- 
centage between 52 and 62%. 
"We have to play defense and 
then we'll be able to make a 
run for it." He says that the 
team is working together bet- 
ter now, as the new personnel 
are becoming acclimated. 

The men will face Western 
Maryland at home on Dec. 10. 
They will attend the 
Washington and Jefferson 
Tournament on Jan. 6 and 7

Against the Eastern Eagles 
on Dec. 1, the women tallied 
their first win. Contributing to 

the 74-72 win were Smith with 
28 points, Dicksie Boehler 
with 20, and Laurie Kratzer 
with 10. With just seconds to 
go the game was tied at 72. 
Then Kratzer rebounded a 
missed shot and netted a 
backboard shot with 2 seconds 
left to win the game. 

On Dec. 3, the team 
travelled to Washington D.C. 
to play the Gallaudet School 
for the deaf. The LVC women 
fell short, 70-52. The teams 
played even ball until the half 
when the score rested at 32-31 . 
But in the second half, 
Gallaudet broke away, out- 

scoring the lady Dutchmen 38- 
21. Smith again led the LVC 
squad with 23 points. 

In the second victory of the 
season, the women defeated 
Dickinson 73-72. Smith led the 
LVC team with 28 points, 
while Penny Hamiton added 
19 and Kratzer scored 10. 
Smith scored with ten seconds 
left to make it 73-70. The LVC 
women let them bring the ball 
down and score, and the clock 
ran out on another LVC vic-
